    Drank a bottle of Piper-Heidsick 2000 cuvee on New Years. Tasty. Toasty. And was $37.00. I do like Salon, and Cristal, for that matter. But for 37 bucks this Champagne was good.

    I agree peachcreek, This Clos de mensil Salon I have had since my Youngest Daughter Becca was born in 94. Becca told me, You had better drink it Daddy before it becomes materized LOL :)

    My pocket book also does not support these gems on a regular basis, But Ohh they are so good.

    P.H. Champange is a very tasty treat. toasty, vanilla and dought on the nose. Yum

    A merlot port by Trentedue. It has an essense of chocolate in it. The final finish is a wonderful chocolate flavor. I usually don't care for things like this but it's pretty tasty.
