...at Costco for $21.99

Better than the Roederer Brut for $3 more. Small bubbles and a light yeasty flavor will make you think it's French instead of CA. Delicious.

Splurged for our anniversary. Really nice bottle of bubbly if you get a chance to try it.

...3 times the price of the Carneros.

My wife's birthday is NY Eve and she loves champagne so I always buy her a nice bottle of French.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

Just went to a Joseph Phelps tasting here.

Tried the 2015 Napa Cab, 2014 Insignia, and 2015 Insignia. You can't justify the 4X price. I did enjoy the Insignia more but not that much more.

But if money were no object...
