Also suspect if oenophiles did blind tastings of expensive wines along
with some mass market wines, they may not always reliably pick out the
cheap stuff.

That has often happened.
I long ago just decided to enjoy what I enjoy - saved me a fortune on wines, especially!
Although I must admit that the best wine I ever had was a very aged Champagne that apparently cost over £100 (provided by a friend!) - and I normally don't even like Champagne.

I once lived near a tasting-room/sales outlet for a California winery.
Astonishing how fast "taste-before-you-buy" will wean you away from the
cheap stuff!

At one time airlines in the U.S. were advertising "champagne flights",
on which they served free champagne with the (then) free meals. If that
was your sole contact with champagne, it left you wondering what all the
fuss was about!

The best I can recall was in the early 1990s in north-east Turkey.
We had a picnic on the riverbank at Tekkale (near Artvin) where
two furious torrents meet. The Soviet Union's closing down sale
meant that busloads of Georgians were coming over the border to
sell stuff and prostitute themselves. At the Georgian market in
Yusufeli, we got a bottle of wonderful Azerbaijani pink champagne
for about 2 quid and a jar of caviar to go with it for 50p, together
with a fresh loaf of local bread. Yum.

On checking out the prices you'd pay in the UK for similar caviar
when we got back home, it seemed we'd eaten 200 pounds' worth for
lunch.

I always prefer champagnne when the gas has dispersed. I prefer wines
without fizz, seems to have more flavour.

I got very badly caught by a taste before you buy in a winery in Cochem in the
Mosel Valley. What we tasted was excellent what we bought was filth.

How do you manage to keep it that long?

Champagne is supposed to keep its fizz for some 36 hours after
opening...
