Noticed the highly decorated wall behind the bottle. Are you in Dom Perignon heaven?

The 2008 Dom Pérignon was already absolutely delicious, the 2008 Cristal a few weeks ago was more salty, citrusy, tighter with great longevity.

Finally cracked a bottle of 08 and it's no joke. Easily the best young Dom I've ever had....which is ideal as its the year my wife and I got married. I will continue to load up on these.

I could not resist the temptation and bought a glass at a Milan restaurant. Heavy pour thankfully, and very special. All class.

I have now had 3 bottles this year- the last 2 were not occasions where detailed notes were possible. I am posting on this thread to note that the wine has recently become unexpectedly accessible and is showing beautifully. The greatest potential is still there- but this has happily opened up since release and it is a great time to open a few before the long slumber begins.

I 1000% agree! This was my first bottle but I was shocked at how open this was right now. Way more giving than I expected, but obviously the best is yet to come. I can see this quickly becoming the largest single bottle holding in my cellar.....and I'm not mad about that at all.

there's quite a bit of it out there at <150 or less. It's definitely harder to get at ~125 like 2009 was, though.

Tried 2009. For me it was nothing special. Comparable to a $70 champ.

2009 is in a weird place right now. I think it needs to be put away for a decade before it will be drinking well. It was amazing right after release but IMO it's shut down. 06 stayed open for awhile but the last bottle we had wasn't drinking so especially well. 08 is fantastic atm but I'm trying to keep my hands off of them, although I've built up an ok supply now and can probably drink them whenever I want.

Just tried it in vacation in Venice for 45 euros a glass. Thought it was a good by the glass price and loved the wine.

Bud. There are 3 certainties in life. Death, taxes, and the need to have a Costco membership. Honestly, the executive membership is like $130 or something and it literally pays for itself at the end of the year (you earn cash back on total purchases). I absolutely hate shopping outside of Amazon (and obviously wine-related sites/stores), and I volunteer to go to Costco every single time my wife brings it up. Freaking love that place. Do yourself a favor and go get a membership tomorrow.

In case of use to you and others, looking at the current market here is what I am seeing,

Acker hammered 12 bottles at $2,232 all in in May, or $186 per bottle. I present that as a secondary market result. They have sold other cases since, but the archive is not yet updated.

Looking at winesearcher, when you consider just the major national players who routinely ship around the country and also who do enough volume that they are selling things based on recent wholesale, $170-180 is a lower end of the range (and where most of the listings reside) with a couple of such merchants around $160.

I bought early at $145 per from a very large grocery chain during one of their periodic 20% off sales earlier this spring. At the time, Costco had the wine intermittently at about the same price.

This pattern is similar to what I observed with 2008 Roederer Cristal- getting in early meant you could get $185ish in many markets depending on the retailer- but now the wine is trading in the $225 to $250 range and there is plenty to go around.

The good news is that I think 2008 Dom is going to be available pretty reliably for at least another year. I would be astonished if 2010 or 2011 were declared- so I expect 2012 will be the next declared vintage.

So for anyone who has not bought yet- I think there is still time to wait for the occasional potential sale in your market or perhaps an auction where many cases are offered and a few go cheap- but I think the very brief window of under $150 is long gone except in the most unusual circumstances (and in such a case I would be asking a lot of questions about storage and provenance.)

Unfortunately, not here in ATL. Costco told me they would not be getting more several months ago. Wished they would ship a few to ATL. The cheapest here in ATL is $169/blt at Tower.

Does anyone know which Costco locations in WLA or San Fernando Valley have the 2008 Dom? I was told a few months back by the Westlake Village location they still had more than a palate of the 2009 and would not get another shipment (he did not know if that meant the 2008 or more 2009) until those were gone. He thought that meant around New Years.

Where do you like for wine buying in HK?
Fine Wine Experience. They are very professional and hold many tastings (food & drinks) for what I consider fair fee.

I was going to pick some up in Hong Kong for slightly cheaper but seems checking out Costco would be better option then. Now.... Who do I know that has membership? Lol

Thanks so much! We'll be there again in a few weeks and don't feel like carrying our own this time.

Excellent, thanks Russell. I'm very impressed by the list of Germans, which are very difficult to find in most parts of Asia. It's always frustrating, since it's what I almost always want to drink with the food.

Has anyone seen them in 375s?
I’ve never seen a half bottle of Dom before - not at the caves or retail.. don’t think they are produced..
I don't know if they did or not, but I've heard stories of "small bottles" of Dom Perignon at a Golf Course. Given that it was my father (who is not "into wine" yet enjoys drinking it if it's under $15/bottle. I have to assume that maybe back in the 80's or 90's maybe they did? He talks about a hole in one that a friend got at a golf course where a friend of his ordered a few "small bottles" of Dom Perignon for the men to share. I'd be curious to hear if anyone else had heard of this?

Has the Lenny Kravitz Ltd Edition version been released yet? I assume this is the same wine that goes into the regular DP?

just a different label and an extra $50, IMO
