Truth in the Media: Miami Heat pops 100 bottles of Dom Perignon worth

Truth in the Media: Miami Heat pops 100 bottles of Dom Perignon worth $100,000. NOT!!!


As most of you know I have been an advocate of Truth in the Media. So you can imagine my outrage when I heard that the Miami Heat popped 100 bottles of Dom Perignon worth $100,000. Ok first my reaction was why waste a nice luxury Champaign for showering each other (see link )


Ok now let us look at the Truth. Enclosed here is a picture of a vintage 1993 Dom Perignon at today’s market price it is worth around $360 per bottle.  As most of you will guess they probably had at best 2003 Vintage. So my best guess is around $160 per bottle. OK now let us do the numbers 100 time $160= $16,000.00 so the TRUTH is not $100,000.00 but a mere $16,000.00 shower in the locker room.

So this reminds me of what the media does with Real Estate…sensationalize something that is not true.


On a side note all I can say is Thank God They did not waste Krug in the Locker Room. I will match anyone on a blind taste testing of Vintage Dom Perignon against Krug Non VintageJ and you know and I know which one you will like betterJ now this is from a Luxury Malibu Realtor who has tasted bothJ

Endre: I had a glass of champagne at the opening night of "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" here in Honolulu tonight and I'm pretty sure it wasn't Dom or Krug. But hey...

Hi Endre - I like how you wove the Miami Heat "story" into exaggerated and often untrue real estate reports.

Endre, we have a 1993 and a 1995 in our frig right now.  Been there for YEARS.  Just not a fan.

We like Krug also, and recently in Champagne we had a Bollinger Rose that was fabulous.  The Heat is not our favorite team, we would have been happier if the Spurs won, and it goes--rooting for the Lakers next year.  A

Hi Endre - You and I need to take a little trip to Naples and raid Chris & Dick's frig, even though I completely agree with you about Dom - I've always thought it was over-rated. Roderer Crystal on the other hand - I think it's worth every penny, it's just a lot more pennies than I'm willing to spend unless it's something really special.

Hella what a great Play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" definitely calls for Champagne:))

Roger I agree what a waste!

Michael sadly the Media plays with the facts and the headlines not just with Real Estate but in General!!!

Chris & Dick  DP is not my favorite either but will drink it if you put it in front of me:))

Alexandra yes a nice Bollinger Rose is welcome in our household:))

Dick we are on the same page with Naples as well as Crystal:))) Hence Krug any day:))

Endre another reminder you can't believe everything you read, so much half truth out there.

Glad you clarified this story for others who might have been horrified too.

Jennifer I had a hard time with 100 bottles of DP to equal $100k...hence the research and the result! either way it is still a lot of wasted money....

Endre-Although I wanted the Spurs to win, as usual in a seven game series, the team that should win usually does. Less than 30-seconds with a five-point lead, the Spurs could have won, but they didn't. As for the Heat, I don't begrudge people spending their money however they see fit, be it for cars, homes, or fine wine. That's just part of being free.

The media-many of them are a disreputable lot on things big and important and small and trivial.

Wayne, just like you I wanted the Spurs to win since my Celtics & Clippers were not in the mix:) I always liked and respected the Spurs as a team and their coach. Needless to say I was annoyed with the Media's miss information about the Dollar Amount. On a side note I would have preferred if the drank the Champagne :)))

Well well well Endre Barath, Jr. turns out you are the orginal fake news caller outer!! Who would waste $16K or more than that on a locker room shower. That's just stupid.  And now back to 2019 :) See you in the Rain!
