Great QPR champagne tasting for $20. Was exposed to a nice variety of sparklers and champagnes hosted by a very knowlegeable Master Sommelier.
I need to explore more "grower" champagnes. Too many of the industrial champagnes have turpentine notes a enough acid to send someone withi G.E.R.D. to the emergency room! LOL.
This is a point in history where champagne is priced high for the quality they provide. The Cristal was an utter disappointment for the money.
Highlight was the Schramsberg offerings - impressive stuff and the USA is getting better all the time.
