Penny, I assume that you are speaking of the Perrier Jouet Champagne. It is a remarkable blend of flavors with a great texture. Considering the alternatives, it is very affordable (most bottles being less than $40). On to your second question, I would not waste my money on Cristal. It was popularized by the "rap music" craze and is far overvalued. Cristal used to be readily available for around $75 and, after it was used by popular rap icons Notorious BIG and Puff Daddy, it surged to over $250 per bottle. To me, it is no different than Cordon Negro Brut with a high price tag and cellophane wrapping.
