Now this is a quandry - will that make it here in time, or do I buy this in addition.
Or do I just buy this also
Why take a chance???
It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking wine: the arrival of a friend; one's present or future thirst; the excellence of the wine; or any other reason.

Having tasted all three of these, I would rank the Fairy Tale the fruitiest (dare I say sweet?), Wedding is a lovely Brut, yet just a hint less dry than the Classic.
All are Bruts, yet each shows just a slightly different expression of how to make a lovely sparkler. Have fun & discover which one is your favorite. Hard to go wrong with any of them.
I bought all three of these when there in March. Rounded out the 6 pack with 2 Chards & a Pinot. Wonderful Tasting experience & beautiful view.
"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy." Benjamin Franklin

But we've never bought Iron Horse before, so help us understand: with Roederer Estate ranging from $15-30, and with Roederer's French champagne going for somewhere in the $40's (I'm citing Roederer because they're a bubbly we know and love) where would you folks place Iron Horse in terms of QPR, etc.?
i find the iron horse vintages to have much more character than the NV roederer... NV roederer tends to be a general crowd pleaser, but has less personality... i've not bought any NV roederer for collection... if you can find their cristal for $40 per bottle, i'll take the whole lot.
