cuvee eh? I like those. I'm more for the dry varieties myself too.

As far as economical varieties go I recommend Domaine Ste Michelle or Cristalino. I don't like Korbel too much. The effervescence is nice, but it's a bit too appley for me.

A nice $30 option is Piper Heidsieck brut.

Of course you can't go wrong with Veuve Cliquot, Tattinger or Perrier Jouet (I had a bottle of this at xmas). Those are all +$45 though.

Tip: if you want to "class up" a bottle of cheap Cook's champagne add a splash of Hendrick's gin or Stoli Blueberi. Adding frozen berries is good too.
