2017 Copain Tous Ensemble Chardonnay

2017 Copain Tous Ensemble Chardonnay

Clearly the first thing that stands out here is the massive limited time discount that might be about as hefty as we’ve ever seen in the wine aisle at Costco. And what makes it even better is that it’s applied to a delicious wine.

Costco’s standard price on this bottle is $21.99, which is below the retail of $28 and the online price around $24, depending on the outlet (Wine.com and Total Wine were in that range). But the massive $10.50 limited time Costco discount brings this one down to only $11.49 which is pretty amazing. I bought three; should have bought more.

The wine pours a deep gold with lemon and vanilla cream on the nose; it is light, just pushing medium in body with flavors of green apple, lemon meringue, light cream and vanilla; some mineral notes and a little oak in the finish. Really well balanced and presented nicely.

This is a 90 pointer for me. Wine Spectator went 91, and Wilfred Wong of Wine.com went 92. This is a high quality wine at a spectacular price. Discount lasts until 12/19 if these bottles stick around until then.

My TX Costco looked up inventory of 2017 Copain Tous Ensemble Chardonnay to see where it is. System indicates no inventory at any store in the country.

@DFry, I’m in the Tampa Bay Area and found only 6 bottles left at my Costco. I bought 3 of them and hope they restock at some point. Oddly enough, we were at a restaurant a few days ago and on their wine list was the Copain Chardonnay. I’d never seen this winery on a list before so of course had to try it. Very good! Looking forward to opening mine.

That's interesting since I just bought some and photographed it in a store in Atlanta a few days ago. Sounds to me like something's wrong with the system. We are independent of Costco so only have access to the same consumer level info as anyone else. Not sure what else to say about that one...hope it turns up for you

Where can we get this? Didn’t see it at our Costco in Tustin.

I bought 8 bottles. The 1st one seemed a little bit harsh but got better as the bottle sat on the counter. I don't have a wine cooler so it comes out of the frig at 37. 2nd bottle sat on the counter for 15-20 minutesb4 opening. Much better. When I get to the 3rd bottle I'll know.

@Greg, Not sure where or when the photo was taken for the blog post was taken. My TX Costco looked up inventory for 2017 Copain Tous Ensemble Chardonnay yesterday to see where it is. System indicates no inventory at any store in the country.
