    Bit of an update since I started the thread. :)
    Just bought an apartment with my girlfriend, decided it was finally time to have a proper alcohol cabinet to display the collection. :)

    (The Dom in the middle was a celebratory champagne on the day we settled. It's all gone now. :D)

    Cheers. :) To be honest...it wasn't amazing. I mean yes, it was a fantastic champagne, but I expected more. It wasn't that much more special than Veuve Cliquot or Moet et Chandon NV...despite being ~3x the price.

    I tried Krug once (can't remember exactly what type, but I think it was just NV) and I remember that being much nicer than the Dom. Still, it's a nice memento, and I certainly wouldn't say it was "bad". :)

    Cheers,
    - Febs.

    Thanks :)

    Lol yeah the fucking good port.. its ok, not the greatest, but still drinkable :)
    Makes good conversation at parties etc :D
    I bought it from the Toorumbarry Pub, near Echuca Vic. The pubs on the way to our camping spot for southern 80 so we get a few bottles every year for mates etc :)

    I could possibly get a few bottles of this. My parents live not to far from the place and do regularly go that direction.
