For the people voting over $100, how many bottles of Champagne do you have?
~40 cases; it’s hard to keep track and I haven’t updated CT in awhile. At least 2/3 is grand Marques, mostly dp/krug although I’ve started adding more Cristal lately.

Average is probably 150-200 with ~4-500 bottles in stock. I’d like champagne to be about 25% of then cellar but not quite there yet.

Re: Questions for Bern's steakhouse

I beg to differ with all of you. Yes it is not what it once. However you also have to value provenance and the ability to send wine back (I am told that you can't do this at Tour D'Argent even for TCA for some bottles - not sure if this is true as I have never sent a wine back over several visits)....
