gnomad BS: Champagne Question??? (64* d) RE: BS: Champagne Question??? 01 Dec 12

Stim: I don't know how heavily the States will tax French wine (I expect it varies by State) but the combined tax, and duty, and tax on duty, amounts to quite a mark-up here in the UK. That probably accounts for much of the difference.

Wine & Spirit Trade Assn site has details to dismay or please you, depending on your viewpoint.

Like PSM I have no fondness for Champagne, sparklers just don't light my candle. I'll drink them out of politeness, of course, but wouldn't actually choose one for myself. I will happily consume many another wine, and have tasted both the sublime and those that could be used for battery acid. Most would be preferable to even the best Champagne that I have tried (IMO, of course).
