Re: TN: 2002 Moët & Chandon Champagne Cuvée Dom Perignon Andy Warhol Label

I bought several cases of the '02 regular label, and a couple of cases of the Warhol. Opened one regular label last year, and wished I had waited. Way too young. Not popping another one until 2020. At the time, Costco was selling the Warhol for the same price as the regular label........ Hey Gene.....
