Ok my Pookie(sweetheart) cant stand champagne but his experience is like mine I either got the cheap champagne or the one they serve at a bar for New Years.
Are they the same in taste or the higher dollar ones taste better?
What is a good one to get that is affordable ideally I would like to stay in the range of $25 to $50

thanks

I like the following:

Taittinger La Francaise Brut Champagne - SKU 1023646

Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label 750ml - Jericho Wine is probably my favorite.

Schramsberg | America's First House of Sparkling Wine is lovely too.

Veuve Clicquot. My fave

Moet and Chandon White Star is good too, but I like VC better.

It is technically "sparkling wine", but very good:

We like Freixenet, a Mexican sparkling wine. Even though I consider myself more sophisticated than most about wines, I cannot make myself like champagne. To me it tastes a lot like Alka Seltzer. Freixenet, however, I like pretty well. Admittedly, I have not tried really expensive champagne, so I might like it if I tried it.

Call me cheap, but I've never been much of a wine or champagne person. One thing I could actually slightly enjoy though is simply Martini and Rossi Asti. I know I will probably catch a lot about that one, but that's just me.

That's not too bad for a cheap sparkling wine, it's very dry tho. I believe it's from Spain
