Favorite Champagne??? - Page 3

post #31 of 58
The expensive ones have been covered so...

deVenoge if you are looking for a good "costs $30 but taste like $100 champagne"
Nicholas Feuillate (sp?) Rose for rose champagne

Not a big champagne guy but I always drink it during celebrations and holidays. My favs:

Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label- above average taste, easy to find, low/moderate price. Perfect for those times when I decide to get a bottle 2 hours before a get together.

Krug NV- had this on NYE... very good. Given the level of wine stores in my area, tough to find. I think I paid $70 for a 375ml.

Bollinger NV- a little less enjoyable than the Krug for my taste buds. Same problem with Krug for price/availability though.

I had plenty of other $30-50 bottles when trying to find one for my wedding reception last year, but none stood out enough to recall now...

Would love to try a Krug Rose or DP Rose one day. It'll have to be a day when my wife has no way of discovering the purchase price

Tattinger Rose, Veuve Cliquot Yellow, Moet White Star, Abrau Durso Rose.
I do not like Brut. I like it semi-sweet or semi-dry, both of which never available in US of A.

And ohh I forgot the Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque 1985, though I think the 88' is in that section too.

Bitch please, youre real age is like 15 or have you turned 16 yet?
This guy is the most well-known mythomaniac in Sweden, seriously I'm not exaggerating. How in the whole wide world could this 'KID' taste the difference from a bottle of fucking Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial (non vintage) from a Salon -85. Stop the bullshitting Gunnar, (du framstår bara mer som en pank nolla).

Don't belive a line of what this poser writes.

Deutz. without hesitation.
Tattinger Rose is also a fun champagne for a cheesy romantic date that includes lingerie, candles...... the whole nine yards.

1990,1998,2000,1996 Dom Perignon, I have a case of the '96 in my cellar and I'll probably have 2 bottles left by Friday.

Non-vintage wise - Pol roger '98,'96 - Bollinger '98

If you want some help collecting wine I have a few bottles spare (non-aging) if anyone wants to get their hands on some special ones..

I'm partial to Laurent-Perrier.

Krug NV.
Veuve Cliquot Yellow if I'm trying to not spend too much.

I saw M&C White Star recommended, so I'm going to address it briefly. Please don't waste your money on this stuff. It's M&C's American wine, and it's so laden with sugar it's almost undrinkable. If you like your champagne to be more than just bubbles and sugar, look elsewhere.

Schramsberg Blanc de Noir is our new, regular favorite. At about $35 a bottle it is a great value. I don't recall anything under $100 a bottle that tastes as good.

Roederer, Deutz and Henriot ; de Sousa, Bruno Paillard, Mountadon, and others.

IMHO, better Champagne are Gruet BdNoir-$15.00, Roederer BdNoir-$27.00

When did Roederer make a blanc de noirs? Was it a one-off thing?

The most recent bottle of champagne I bought was a 1995 Pol Roger Winston Churchill. It hasn`t been opened yet but I`m looking forward to trying it.

They made around 3000 bottles available for sale in 2007 according to their own site.
I have relatively hard time locating them in MA . Meaning I know two stores that carry that Champagne in Rose and I have to drive 30-40 minutes to either.
If you call around you might find a store in your area that stocks it. Ask for Anderson Valley Roederer with Pink Foil (regular ubiquitous Roderer has a gold one).
