A moment of Champagne excitement

For several years it has been impossible to find Billecart-Salmon rose. Found some. Yay! It truly is one of my faves. Looking forward to New Years Eve, sitting there with my bride of 37 years in our terry cloth bathrobes, watching something like Top Hat, swilling, maybe with a small jar of caviar and a spoon.
I'm going to a hipster N-Y's eve with Kombucha vinaigrette dressing, Muskoka HARVEST ALE...and an old clock radio.
My wife and I had a bottle of Billecart's 1998 "Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon" Rose for our anniversary this year. One of the Champagne highlights of my life, along with Pierre Peters 1999 "Les Chetillons" BdB...
If you ever see Billecart Salmon's Blanc de Blanc Grand Cru grab it up! Similar in price to the rose, and I think it's ever better.
Enjoy the bottle(s)!
<<Price varies greatly.>>
Online, that should be stated in very large, and a red font.
I went looking for a NZ PG, and found prices ranging from US $ 12.00/btl. (plus case shipping, that was pretty fair), to US $329/btl., with shipping extra, bringing that price to about US $400/btl - OK, and for a PG?
Maybe I should post that I have a bottle of Joseph Phelps Insignia '01, and it is only US $ 20,000, plus I will deliver it, anywhere, by hand, for a charge of US $ 50,000? Heck, for US $ 70,000 total, I will show up at your door, with a 12 btl. vertical of Insignia, and then entertain your guests.
