Mine arrived today, without the presentation box. But definitely 750ml version.

I presented to my wife. She thinks I am crazy that I bought it for her for the wedding anniversary :rolleyes:. She said she saw this deal in other forums, and thought nobody would be so silly to buy such packs :oops:...... I explained the champagne is worth a lot more than the cost itself.

Now we are trying to think of restaurant to go to drink with the champagne. Any ideas on kind of food and restaurants would match the Taittanger? I need help on this.

Mine got to Sydney this morning... wonder if that means I'll be waiting till Friday?

Well, the Qantas Wine website suggests...

Food Matching
Perfect for a truly special celebration, this champagne would also go very well with a starter based on seafood, shellfish or fish.

However I usually just have it for breakfast when I'm in the F lounge* ;)

*Note: I realise this particular champagne isn't offered in the lounge.

I just received mine this morning, also from Melbourne. They must have sent it in a batch.

As someone who never had this level of champagne before, should I store this in a cool place or in my fridge? I don't have a wine fridge....

Not sure if this one has been reported or is old, but for those who missed out on the Champagne this deal seems alright if you like mixed cases. Apparently over 1000 dollars worth for 588 or 530 for points club plus members with the Taittinger. Personally I have enough pyjamas so the extra wine works for me

My 4 packs arrived yesterday to add to the 6 I bought in December. Will need to start drinking them. This lot wrapped in paper instead of boxes, but I wasn’t going to gift them anyway😌

The extra 10% discount through Points Club Plus helped me make my decision.

I’m a bit annoyed they sat out in the open by the front door all day, instead of hidden (as per instructions on the boxes) 📦 🤨

....and I should have bought an assortment of PJ sizes, instead of all S/M.

Mr ALH grabbed the Almonds for the office.

IF you don't have anywhere proper to store it, then drink it sooner rather than later. Short term (few weeks) fridge is fine. Don't store it long term in a regular fridge as it is a very dry environment and not ideal for the cork.

Mine arrived this afternoon, just the paper wrapper. Left on the doorstep in the shade.
Mine has moved. From a northern suburb to central Adelaide but no sign of it arriving today, even though the PO Box is located at Adelaide's main distribution centre. I sent it to a PO Box because last week three packages were delivered to an address around 1 km away. Aus Post are now taking photos of where they leave parcels (maybe it's a trial in SA) and I know where they left it, but the number even street are poles apart.

Mine was "onboard for delivery" yesterday morning and still not here. Getting very jealous of you all. :p

This happens a bit with Fastway.... I hope it's just a KPI thing where they tick "onboard" and my wine wasn't actually in a hot van all day.

Are you in Adelaide? Mine has been sitting in one or other Adelaide depot since Wednesday and now arrival date not until Monday - Wednesday now. Mine is with Australia Post.

No, country Victoria here. Although my AusPost experience sounds similar when it's something exciting/valuable 🤣

EDIT: Just as I sent this I received 1 of 2 from Fastway....

Did anyone noticed the First Class nuts included in the pack has a best before date of last month? I know it's a first world problem but just found it strange.
