Re: At What Price Point Will You Boycott The 2008 Taittinger Comtes?

As much as I’m happy to jabber and read about 2008 Comte as nauseum, 2008 Ployez-Jacquemart Liesse d'Harbonville is like Fight Club. What’s the first rule?

Re: At What Price Point Will You Boycott The 2008 Taittinger Comtes?

$119 a case. $125 half a case. $135 one bottle. $135.99 I'll just buy more Marguet, Bouchard, Etienne Calsac, Laherte Frères, Moussé Fils, Vilmart and Ployez-Jacquemart; I hear there is a glut of Champagne.

I'll just wait to see what Envoyer and Lopa offer it at. If it's over $135, I'll probably pass completely. Envoyer offered the 2006 at $119.
