    From the title of the thread I thought this was meant to be in the alternative section. I am still thinking the same thing for some reason even after I read through it.

    Auction it on E-Bay, you might be suprised. Don't tell your customer.
    If it does well, get the rest of the bottles.

    I opened one

    I have opened one of the bottles of 66 Dom and I was quite surprised! It was full of flavor and bubbles. Tasted sweet yet dry.

    sounds like my boss; they asked him how he'd like his coffee. He said "I like my coffee like I like my women...black!" He asked for a large black coffee, so I asked him if it meant he likes large black women?

    Maybe that's what I'll tell my wife the next time she disses some oxidated champagne we're drinking:

    "I like my champagne the way I like my women."

    So your acquired taste for "things nutty" is fairly univrsal then?

    Oxidated champagne (which is what happens to it when it gets old) is sort of a special taste. Some people like it (I do); they'd call its flavor "nutty". Most don't (my wife doesn't); they'd call its flavor "musty".

    That means there's no special value to aged champagne. Just drink it.

    Re: sorry......

    No idea what to do with it???

    Well, 1st, make sure that it's being stored on it's side, if it's not already.

    And, as far as what to do with it..... open one bottle and see how it tastes. :) It was givin to you, so what do you have to lose. Go ahead, pop the cork.....


    Hey...Now.....

    what a sad waste! champagne, unlike some women, does not age gracefully.

    sorry......

    sorry guys.........but I have 3 bottles of this stuff and I have no Idea what to do with it. If it has gone bad, I guess its worthless. It has been wrapped and boxed for 37 years. A customer of mine has like 20 bottles still wrapped & boxed and gave me three.

    Been doing some housecleaning? :D

    If you're a Brit, it's235 Pounds Sterling or around $375.

    If you live in CA, it's $550

    Then again, maybe the champagne cognoscenti are pulling a fast one and the remaining bottles are crap.

    <<Should you age Champagne after you buy it? Generally not. Fine French Champagne is ready to drink within months of release. Some vintage Champagnes and most luxury cuvées can benefit from 2-4 years of further aging. But it isn’t necessary and definitely don’t over do it. If stored well, the best Champagnes will hold for up to 10 after bottling (that can be up to 20 years after the vintage date on the bottle), but you are taking a risk. That 1966 Dom Perignon in your cellar was darned good - about 15 years ago!>>

    Draw your own conclusions.
    And use search engines, damnit!!! :mad:
