Default Better than Moet & Chandon

I can buy Moet & Chandon for $23/bottle at costco..is there a better
champagne for around that price?

By the way, I met Don Ho in hawaii and blamed his song "tiny bubbles"
for my addiction to champagne. He smiled knowingly. At 73, its good to
know you can still smile or do anything...

I rather like the Roederer Anderson Valley NV Brut for $16
at Costco.

My best buy recently was a case of Charles Heidsieck Mis en Cave 1997 at Makro (more
or less a UK equivalent of Costco) for about GB13.50. My personal opinion, however,
is forget Champagne and get some Cloudy Bay Pelorus, NV or vintage (the 1996 is
particularly good), which the UK wine writer Malcolm Gluck describes as "better than
Krug".

Regards,

Ian

It occurs to me, I should apologize for interpreting
"champagne" as "sparkling wine" and not "Champagne".

This Cloudy Bay Pelorus NV does not appear to be available in the USA. any
insight from others here.

I checked Wine Access and Winesearcher with no luck.
