I am not some lunatic spending hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars on champagne. I will happily spend up to $15,000 on a casual bottle. I refuse to spend over $50,000 for a special occasion bottle. I have to budget to some degree.
I buy six bottles of champagne every week to keep on reserve. And for special occasions, I buy more. Champagne is more than just a drink – it’s an offering, a show of respect and admiration, and a demonstration of wealth.
What’s the point of even having wealth if you are doing nothing to demonstrate it, darling!?
I’m not saying that the wealthy are gods, but the gods did have their ambrosia did they not?!
