I was at Wegman's today to shop for a Labor Day cookout, and went to their wine store. It's huge. They have a locked refrigerator about 50 feet long full of VERY expensive wines and champagne. I've seen Dom Perignon in grocery stores before, but this is the first time I've seen stuff like Cristal and the insanely expensive Tattinger. They had a 6-liter bottle of the stuff for $1000! The bottle was HUGE. Dear God. That's one bottle of champagne I would not want to be around when the cork is popped.
The most expensive champagne I've ever had was Moët & Chandon, on New Year's Eve a few years ago. And that was one of their lowest priced bottles- a steal at $45.
Wegman's is a fun place to shop. But is there really a market in my town for $1000 champagne? O_o
