Champagne bottles are great. I like to use them for bottling my annual Christmas beer gifts, which always get a warm reception!
In addition to what Pappers said, you should be aware that there are two different kinds of champagne bottles. There's the "American" bottle that takes standard bottle caps, and then there's the "European" version that takes a slightly larger 29mm size cap. You'll need a larger bell for your capper to use 29mm caps. The red barron is the only capper I'm aware of that has the larger bell. My old bench style cappers are standard size.
