'08 Dom hard pass.
I'm good for 08 champagnes. I think '12 is even better than '08. Will wait for '12.

Asked for a few of the 2008 Huré Frères Champagne Terre Natale. 10 years on the lees, old vines, low dosage, clean farming, and Frank Murray III approved for that low of a tariff? What am I missing? Is it just that Ludes isn't as acclaimed as other regions? It looks like one of my favorites, Ployez-Jacqyemart, is also in Ludes? Yes please!

I've heard '12 is great for noirs but not for chardonnay? Absolutely everything I've read says '08 is better than '12?

It’s supremely easy to drink and goes with everything. Very nice acidity and balance. It’s the type of champagne that you can drink a bottle of without even noticing. Very little guilt popping at at $29/pop

Great price today on the ‘08 Cristal. I wish I had unlimited resources and storage.

I was also tempted, but only for a nanosecond. With retirement starting soon it was an easy pass.

*pokes head in* hello, relative Champagne novice and Envoyer newbie here. does this site offer at lower prices in its mailing list? 2006 Comtes (which I very recently had and it made me actually revaluate my entire view on Champagne) is available on W-S, will this site periodically offer it cheaper? or do people just like the variety/availability?

Envoyer has great deals on Champagne, especially grower bubbles. They regularly offer the 2006 Comtes for $120 but that is coming to the end of its run. They just offered the 2007 at $110.

Just bit on the Veuve Fourny Grand Reserve Brut. Really nice, very affordable Champagne and a great bottle to bring to friends houses over the holidays.

Sometimes prices are better than what you're likely to find elsewhere. Sometimes the same. Infrequently higher.

For me at least (and I think I'm not alone) is the wide variety of Champagnes put on offer - it can be pretty hard to find such a variety in even the best of local stores.
