Champagne I'm Digging Right Now

Rank Wine Rating Price
1 Claude Genet Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Chouilly France Champagne
Comments: Everything you want from a grower Champagne without an "up-and-coming" price tag. Citrus peel and pear nectar with a strong acidic backbone and delicate perlage.
Previously available for $24.17

2 Edmond Barnaut Champagne Blend Champagne Grande Réserve Brut Grand Cru (1975)
Comments: Love the winery's description of this wine: "for every occasion, from tea time to dawn"! Lightly chewy with tasty baguette yeastiness and simmered Jonagold apples, the zesty acidity contributes seamless balance.
Previously available for $36.93

3 Pierre Peters . Reserve Champagne Blanc de Blancs Premier (NV)
Comments: I promise my taste buds to thee always, Pierre Peters! Graceful, streamlined and loaded on flavor, this is my everyday go-to cuvée from this producer. Careful: every one of Rodolphe's cuvées can induce bliss!
Previously available for $119.99

4 9 (NV)
Comments: Vinous yet terroir-oriented Champagne. Brioche, crème anglaise and French toast flavors give way to an ample mid-palate. Succulent.
Average price: $29.99 from 1 store

5 Bereche et Fils Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Rosé (NV)
Comments: A young and ambitious winemaker who HAND corks all his bottles (amazing patience!) As the proverbial onion peels back, you taste notes of stone fruits, marmalade, oyster crackers and roasted Marcona almonds.
Average price: $45.00 from 4 stores
List It
6 Laherte Freres Rose Tradition Pinot Noir. Pinot Meunier. Chardonnay
Comments: This wine exudes freshness thanks to its youth and spry acidity. Crammed with red berry flavors and chalky notes, there's just a whiff of brioche crust to assure you it's definitely Champagne. There's enough depth here to provide good length.
Average price: $52.99 from 1 store
