I just spent $50.00 on a bottle of champagne that wasn’t even that good. Learning experience, as this is my first New Year’s Eve where I can legally drink.
Just because a champagne is from Reims and is generally considered good does not make it good for the uneducated palate.
Yes, I also realize this is without a doubt the most privileged thing I’ve ever done. A lot of people can’t afford to spend fifty dollars on food, let alone on a bottle of overrated champagne.
