Bumping this for you.

I’m not much help because I’ve had everything from Korbel to Dom Perignon and I don’t think there’s much difference lol It all depends on the amount of sweetness you want. Brut – dry and barely sweet; Extra/dry – slightly sweeter than brut but still dry; sec – moderately sweet; demi-sec – fairly sweet; and doux- the sweetest champagne

@jesssamesssa:  Personally I LOVE Veuve Clicquot (both yellow label and pink label). It tastes amazing, and no headache in the morning! It’s pricey though – that’s why I only get it for *VERY* special (hint hint) occasions. 🙂

@jesssamesssa:  I love Schramsburg Brut Rose’.  It is a bit pretty pricey….but so good!!  I also love their Cremant’ but that is more of a sweet champagne.

Yep – another vote for Veuve Chicquot here!!!  I drink a lot of champagne and it is my very favorite (even above Dom, Christal, etc.).  Yum, yum!

I like Pommery.  I’ve been to their caves so I might be biased…=)

Depends what you like!  I do NOT like a Brut, but some people do.  I prefer a Demi-Sec or Sec sparkler. 

You have a couple weekends left to “sample!”

Veuve and Moet are both very good “special occasion” champagnes ($40-50), in my opinion. I used to love the Moet White Star, but they don’t make it any more.

If you can get it, I had an incredible sparkling pinot noir from Goose Watch Vineyards in the Finger Lakes region of NY. It was only $18 and it was delicious. I was nervous because I don’t like sweet wine and I think we’re all conditioned that pink=sweet (probably because of white zin) but it was crisp, fruity, and dry.

@jesssamesssa:  Mid-range expensive ($20-30 per bottle) I would pick Rosa Regale or Coppola’s Sofia.  Cheap would be Cristalino Brut or Extra Brut (under $10 per bottle).  Expensive go for the Cristal ($200+ per bottle depending on where you live).  I am not a fan of Dom Perignon; it tastes bitter to me.

Well, I like Dom too but I LOVE Wilson Creek’s Almond Champagne. It’s super yummy

@peachacid:  I like Pommery too! Both the champagne and the caves!

@jesssamesssa:  If you’re looking for a different opinion, I dislike Veuve, a lot. For a cheaper price point, like Veuve, I’d stick with Bollinger or Tattinger…. even Moet is ok.

If you’re looking for something even cheaper than those prices, you probably can’t get champagne. Cremant is the next best thing in my opinion but I can’t recommend one because I’m in Ontario and our selection is terrible (can’t even get Bollinger or Tattinger easily).

If you’re looking for something very decadent, go with a vintage Dom Perignon. Totally worth the money, especially for a special occasion.

It would probably be helpful to clarify what you mean by best.  There are so many options!  One idea is to do the mini Pommery Pink Pop bottles, they are really fun and you can do mini bottles (  Or, there are mini cans of sparkling wine, Sofia Minis that are also really cute!

Both are really fun options!
