I need a champagne suggestion

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by hiderebirth, Sep 24, 2005.

  1. the title says it all, I need a suggestion for good but inexpensive champagne.
    so educate me on this bubbly drink called champagne TB champagne gurus!!!
  2. Are you a wine drinker? If not, stay away from the "dry" champagnes, the drier, the more bitter. Wine drinkers have a more "refined" palate, meaning they learn to drink nasty bitter tasting wines and tell people they're better.

  3. I'm not a big wine drinker but I don't mind dry wines

    I've always been a fan of Moet Chandon, White Star....

    That being said, are you looking for a true Champagne, or just a sparkling white wine. True Champagne only comes from one place on earth (the Champagne region in France), and "inexpensive" is a relative term.
  6. that's probably way over my budget ;)

  7. sparkling wine is fine, and inexpensive as in sub $40 (I'm broke)

    Champagne comes from the Champagne region of France. Sparkling wine comes from everywhere else. If you can get it, Schramsberg is one of the best. Other than that, Mumms California Cuvee is standard for my events.
  11. Good point. It'll probably take a lot more than a little champagne to talk him into the 69 thing. I'd go with hard liquor. The more the better.

  12. I know some very good champagne for 11.75€ the bottle.....
    It's cheap! I can tell you the name....

    Balator - 8 bucks a bottle. It is the best tasting "champagne" I've tasted.

    There are already some good suggestions, but I'll add a bit. I'm a fan of Roederer. I've also had a very good Chandon and Gloria Ferrer. For less expensive stuff, Domaine Ste Michelle is ok and often on the sweet side. If you're not into wine, Asti Spumante is probably safe. Don't get Cook's anything!
