Doug
After you finish the first bottle, it doesn't matter what the second tastes like.

I am not much of a Champagne Aficionado so I am no help here.

All I know about champagne is that Dom Perignon is sex in a bottle.

Tattinger was my fave. Fruity and creamy. Or you could try Pol Roger, Bollinger, Moet et Chandon, Heidseck. I think that's about it,I.I.R.C.

There are tons of great champagnes out there, and many are small producers (unlike, say, Cliquot or Moet).

Easy to find good stuff that won't break the bank: (all Brut) Piper Heidseick, Moet Imperial (White Star), Veuve Cliquot, Perrier Jouet, Laurent-Perrier, Tattinger.

Easy to find that can break the bank: (all Brut) Moet Dom Perignon, Veuve Cliquot La Grande Dame, Perrier Jouet (Flower Bottle), Laurent-Perrier Gran Siecle, Louis Roderer Cristal, Bollinger Grand Anee or RD, Krug NV.
