You know what I mean. The expensive ass champagne that the celebs guzzle straight from the bottle like us peons do Miller Light. I want to know what's so damn great about it. The VH1 fabulous life shows say that it costs $1000, but they're just fibbing. It's more like $300 or less. It might be $1000 in the clubs or something. Anywho, enough rambling....anybody had it?

yes I first tried it over New Years this year, I was in Vegas, a good friend of mine apparently knows these rich guys (honestly I think they were mexican mafia or something like that), well in Vegas after we went to the clubs with these guys, me and my friends, which knew these guys that were rich as hell. We went back to their suite at the Hard Rock Cafe, which was awesome! and we were passing around these bottles of Crystal and just swigging them out of the bottle.....now keep in mind that it was about 9 in the morning at this time....well when it came my turn to swig the bottle I took a swig and then dropped it on the floor and about 1/3 of it spilled out....and they did pay about $1000 because they bought it from the hotel

Last I noticed it was about $125 a bottle. Im guessing it gets much more expesive if its older stuff or you are at a nice club.

Guess I don't have a taste for champagne. I have had the two most popular under cristal (Dom Perignon and some other Moet stuff i cant remember the name of) and didnt think it was all that impressive. It taste a lot better than the ceap shit but I cant really see what the big deal is.

Cristal champagne? no.

Crystal meth? undoubtedly yes, it's cheaper.

I plan on getting four bottles of it for my wedding party to drink during the reception.

Hopefully, it's worth it.

Tastes like shit imo. I wouldn't mind being the guy that dooped all these rappers into thinking it's good though.

I've had both Cristal and Dom Perignon.

I have to say, I don't think I have discerning enough taste in champagne notice a significant difference.

My overall opinion is that it's not worth it to the average person, in regards to taste. You're not going to notice it being 20 times better than Korbel. However, to average Joes like me, the "glam factor" might be worth it on occasion. It's nice to celebrate a really special occasion, and know that you're indulging, even if you're not sure you notice the difference.

There have been occasions in my life that demanded excess in their celebration. Sometimes that means too many tequila shots, other times it means an over-priced bottle of champagne. There's fun in knowing that you're throwing money away sometimes.

why not just buy an empty bottle, and pour some cheap shit in the bottle? Much cheaper i bet.

Champagne is a great appetite stimulant. The Mrs. and I often start a really nice meal out with a glass of chapagne. I've never gone for the really good stuff, but I can definitely tell the difference between a $30 bottle of Mumm Cardon Rouge and a $11 bottle of Korbel. Korbel isn't bad and is what we will drink 9/10 times at home.

Throwing away money is downright painful to me. That isn't my idea of "fun."

It's a pretty bottle and tickles my nose, but I'll take Dom over Cristal anyday.

Reminds me of an article about how people are buying liquor at clubs for $300/bottle so they can feel special, when they can get the same stuff for $30 at a liquor store...

Maybe I'll open a bar...

My uncle had some of it and I said I wanted to try it, given I see it all the time on rap videos and such, I just wanted to see what the big deal about it was, so I drank it, and like most other champagnes, it tasted like shit.

Champagne is to good wine as Rocky Mountain Carbonated Barley Pop is to real beer.

JMO.

If you are going to blow a huge amount of money on a bottle of alcohol, buy something decent like J. Walker Blue Label.

Do it! I sent Gunther a wedding invitation and he and his wife sent us some pretty nice stuff from Mikasa.

BTW, send me an email with your details so we can send you a gift. Only 30 more days until the baby!

No lie, I'm sending him an invitation.

I've love Cristal light but the nutrasweet in it gives me a roaring headache. You guys must not make much money if you think it's expensive...I mean it's cheaper than koolaid.

At least in a strip club $1000 will get you a bottle with half of it drunk by an already drunk whore.

We have Krystals here, and it's the bomb. What's this stuff about it being expensive, you can buy a bag of 24 for like 10 bucks.
