Has anyone tried this wine from bottle yet? I am getting my 2 bottles next week, after loving the barrel sample back in January. I am sure it has many years in front of it.

Hey IW, did you ever taste this in bottle? A pile of us in Ontario just bought in on it but won't have it in hand for another 2-3 weeks.

I will be opening this in a couple weeks. My first of 2 from bottle. Has anyone tried this recently?

I have a couple of bottles as well. Never had this type of cdp before.

I also own a couple and haven't tried one yet. I'm mostly off CdP these days so I expect I wont really like this one. At the time the RP99 was appealing to me, now I'm nervous this is an indicator I'll dislike it.

Tried one of my bottles in 2014 i believe. Massive, needs years. Beautiful nose though, intoxicating.

If this is the one we tried it was excellent, even in its youth, and I do not like young CdP...ABryce's bottle was impeccably balanced and delicious.
