That is my difficulty as well. I more often drink Ch. Mont-Redon. Have you ever had Pegau? It seems to be the best-reputed CdP, but is also the most expensive by quite a margin.
I do the same, but I also have some interesting sherries laying around, so often either just use them straight or mix with them.
My wife is a huge CDP fan, I'm more of a Northern Rhone guy, but truly appreciate the South as well. We are at the tail-end of some '00-01 CDP, nothing as exalted as either Mont-Redon or Pegau, but good, stuff like Clos de Papes.

Well there you go! Although I find the cocktail suggestions on their website underwhelming. I might make a Rob Roy or a Godfather with it tonight to test it out.
