It was good....but not $375 good.
This is kind of how I feel. I will gladly spent $12 for a 4-pack of Alchemy Hour IPA, because it is a distinctly better flavor and the price point isn't that much higher.
I can't imagine a $4000 bottle of champagne tastes that degree better than, say, a $100 bottle. At some point, the quality simply can't keep up with the price.
