One of the toughest lessons I've learned as my wine knowledge advances is that there often is not a linear relationship between price and quality. So yes, a $50 can be better than a $100 bottle or even a $400 bottle, it really depends.quote:Originally posted by WineGuy2008:
Am I reading this thread correctly that a $50 champagne can be as good as a $100+ Dom Perignon? And that the 1999 and 2000 Dom Perignon is not worth the money at $120 a bottle?
As for the question of "is it worth x?", that is really a personal question that only you can answer. If you really want to get a bottle of champagne, you want it to be DP, you only have access to the current releases, and you can afford it, then maybe it is worth $120 to you. For me personally it definitely is not, though for a '96 DP I'd probably pay $200, but again that's just me.
