Great experience

Great experience in signing up for the monthly plan. Champagne was delivered quickly and super well packaged. The two champagnes chosen were great to compare to each other and the tasting notes provided with the wines were super useful whether you are a wine-nerd or just a lover of the best bubbles around.
