    Default Moët question ...

    I can remember many moons ago I was given a bottle of Moët for my engagement. Back then I didn't drink wine at all and I can't really remember much about it except that half a bottle had me spinning.

    My question is I like the idea of it as a gift - I was thinking of buying a bottle for DS1s teacher. She's usually a Sav blanc drinker (like me) so I'm wondering if it would quite possibly be money wasted??

    Thoughts please

    Personally I would buy her a nice sav blanc.
    Moët can be expensive.
    That is unless you believe her to have gone above and beyond!

    Honestly I'd happily spend up to $100. I wanted to give her something special that she may not buy for herself. I don't think she's a massage type person. I was thinking of giving her a $50 bottle shop voucher .. But I thought popping a nice bottle might be lovely??

    We give Moet to our clients as a gift and most are very appreciative as it's the kind of drink most people like but don't buy for themselves - Dan Murphy's usually has it for $50 -( I think Veuve is better for the extra $10-12 )

    I'm actually going in to teach the prep class for the morning session tomorrow so she can do one on one assessment with the kiddies. I'm on leave so for the first time I have time to help her out (I teach year 1 ... It'll be nice for me to meet the kids before I teach them next year too.)

    She is truly a wonderful teacher. Any other ideas would be welcomed ... I want it to be something special.

    My old boss gave me a $100 bottle of Veuve Clicquot French champagne when I went on maternity leave (to enjoy once DS was born, obviously). Really yummy. That's what I'd get.

    Piper is nice too.

    If she's a sav blanc fan though, I'd buy her that.

    Veuve is nicer than Moët in my opinion. Bollinger is also nice
