Anyone have any hints for a modestly-priced champagne? Hopefully, it is something I can get at BevMo as it is right down the street.

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label
You can usually get it for the mid-thirties. Sometimes it's on sale for the high-twenties.
Best you'll find for the price.

I can't recommend anything, however I could ask around...
1) Define moderately priced?
2) Why type of champagne do you like? Sweeter or Dryer (Demi-Sec - Brut)?
3) Can it be a Rosť Champagne?
or, if you any where near Long Beach, you could walk into the Wine Country, and they'll help you out..

Wilson Creek Almond Champagne. Yum...and it's only twelve bucks at BevMo right now.

What do you consider moderatley priced? Bevmo has a deal on L'Ermitage which is one of my all time favorite champagnes for $35.00 here:
Actually, I recommend ANYTHING from Roederer, as you will see here, all of their products are very highly rated.
If you want to impress the chicks (ie: get laid), you would buy this.
And in any case, chicks dig the Rose as long as it's not a Chandon, Chandon is gross.

i love the veuve clicquot. i melt for that stuff.
also like perrier jouet.
another suitable champagne for about $25 would be moet & chandon white star.
all can be found at bevmo or the grocery store.
personally, the almond champagne is too sweet for me. but a lot of my gf's like that stuff.

Anything that says Roederer, Taittinger, Heidsick, Mumm, or MoŽt somewhere on the label will be fine. Veuve C. is also excellent and always a safe bet as mentioned above. If you want something domestic, try some "J". And yes, don't overlook the Rosť's!! With a nice piece of wild Salmon, what could possibly be better?
For the best value under $15 get some Spanish Cava or Italian Prosecco. Prosecco can be slightly sweet, but Cava is bone-dry and has GOT to be the best deal around these days....

I'll second the nomination of anything from Roderer.

Let me just say this: I really liked the Iron Horse. Delicious! Exciting! Priced well! Is that Domestic?! It's really good! Wow!
I got to joke about how George Bush likes Iron Horse Champagne and that's about all I can agree with him on...haha...cheers! Ching! More please!
