When PA Colored Red, $190 Dom Perignon Worth It?

Posted on 11/04/2012 10:03:10 AM PST by SarahPalin2012

I'm not a drinker, but want to do something special for when PA goes red. Jay Cost (who is the true sage of politics and I think lives in PA), is not formally calling it but reading between the lines I think he thinks we may win. Local Fresh Market has the Dom Perignon (which I've never tried) for $190. Should I?

You can buy a lot of ammo for $190.

I’d spend the money on more utilitarian things.
No matter who wins, in a lot of these areas things are going to get ‘interesting’.

It is delicious, but I like Bakon Vodka! So do the pups LOL! Seriously, We have a aviary home here in NEPAL, and the one Bozo sign is far outnumbered by RR signs...I do believe this Nation is waking up...

If you aren’t a frequent Champagne drinker, you won’t be able to tell the difference between that and a $50 bottle.

Below $50, there is a marked difference so I wouldn’t go any lower.

Note: In countries outside the USA (and in some cases within the USA), Champagne is labelled “Brut.” This is due to a worldwide agreement, which the USA is not a party to, that “Champagne” can only be applied to sparkling wines from grapes from the Champagne region of France.

I would pocket the $100 and go maybe $90.

I’m with the bunch that would rather buy more ammo, but a treat like this would probably be well worth it IF we win.

If we don’t, I would then save it for another historic event in your life and drown your sorrows Tuesday night in Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. ;)

Get an inexpensive bottle of Champagne, and the jug size bottle of Old Crow, just in case PA doesn’t go Red. Mrs. ConservativeInPa is actually out shopping for Champagne right now. I have no idea what she is getting. What ever it is, it will be opened when an electoral vote majority is guaranteed. I hope that is PA.

If you’re not a champagne drinker, $190 for bottle of french champagne is a waste of money. It will be good if you drink it, but you are paying such a premium for the name and good champagne will probably all taste about the same to you.

If you have the cash and want to splurge on good stuff, Fifty or sixty dollars on a bottle of Moet and a hundred thirty dollars left over will probably make you much happier.

It depends on whether you like it. Best wine is always the one you like the best. Most French Champagnes are too dry for American tastes. A lot of the reason people want that champagne is it costs a lot therefore it must be good. For a celebration why not, but there are lots of really tasty sparkling wines in the $50-$70 range and you get to drink 3-4 bottles for the priceof one. Personally I like Shramsburg blanch noirs. It’s not that expensive or dry, great flavor, but those are my taste buds.

I would suggest you try the “Sparkling Muskatell,” the finest wine of Idaho. Be sure to smell the bottle cap.

IMHO, Dom is not worth the cost. I have a bottle of 2002 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Reserve Rose chilled and ready to be popped when I hear the words: President-Elect Mitt Romney. This bottle ran me about $85 when bought it in 2010. The vintage reserves Veuve Clicquot sells,puts Dom to shame. I also plan on having a couple of bottles of moscato and a bottle of Jefferson’s Reserve on hand as well.

Wow, appreciate all the responses. So entertaining and sensible. Did not think I’d get the amount and quality of advice.

I’m leaning toward something more sensible like a lot of the posters suggested. Also, I have 6 shotguns and a LOT of ammo.

Thanks to everyone and I’m glad to have you on our side in our fight for freedom and truth.

Try Prosecco, $10-$20 a bottle, lower at Whole Foods. Tastes just as good as champagne. I like the driest of drinks (beer, sake, wine). Presecco is not the absolute driest, but it is dry enough for my palate, and satisfies those who like a sweeter drink as well. I’m sure you could find a better use for another $170. Whatever you do, don’t give it to the Red Cross.

Uh, 'Brut' means 'dry'. Specifically, fewer than 12 grams of sugar per liter. 'Extra Brut' is dryer still, fewer than 6 grams of sugar per liter.

That said, when celebrating the victory of good over evil, I recommend (to the original poster) Pol Roger - Churchill's favorite (or Ruinart Rosé, one of my favorites).

I know what you’re trying to say, but no. In America it’s labeled sparkling wine. Brut means dry, which describes the sparkling wine. Sparkling wine can be adjectiveless which is sweet, brut which is dry, or extra brut which is very dry.

Many labels do not list "Sparkling Wine" since it is so declasse'.

For example, Ferrari "Champagne" just says "Brut" (CAP is specified different ways -- in this case just Methodo Classico)

I can show a lot of others. If it says "Brut" it means dry in the Champagne (or CAP) style/methode.

Likewise there can be sweet Bruts (e.g. N.V. Henri Abele Champagne Brut Cuvée Spéciale).

I was summarizing in that you won't see (or I never have seen) a Brut NOT done as sparkling.

I wanted to note that you can get really good "champagnes" NOT labeled "Champagne" but always labeled "Brut."

No. Mr. claret and I bought a bottle at a charity auction and were less than impressed. Follow everyone else’s advice on which $50.00 champagne is the best. Then spend the other $140.00 on something else - like maybe a case of Columbia Crest Grand Estates Merlot.
