What champagne to buy for Mom's 50th?
Posted 11 September 2012 - 02:41 PM
My mom is turning 50 this weekend, and I want to buy her a nice bottle of champagne (esp. since I live across the country and can't make it back home). She drinks Peter Franzia with ice cubes, Miller Lite, and PBR, so I really don't need any obscure vintages. Just a nice $50-$100 bottle that will get her giddy.

Why? Not necessarily the best for the money...
Schramsberg Blanc de Blanc, a fave.
But that is not Champagne! :-)
At least get your mom a real Champagne from France.
Obviously taste is a very subjective matter. At that price point, I feel that you have more options with the French champagnes. Also I think that it would have more impact as a gift.
