Best Champagne Brands to Have at Your Upcoming Party

Featured Image

"In a perfect world, everyone would have a glass of Champagne every evening" – Willie Gluckstern

Champagne is a sparkling wine made in the region of Champagne, France from the grapes of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, and is one of the world's most beloved wines. If celebrating is on your "to do" list, then be sure you have the right bubbles for the occasion. What are the best Champagne brands?

Remember, all Champagne is sparkling wine. However, not all sparkling wine is Champagne if it's not from there.

Four True Champagnes Worth Celebrating

Pol Roger Extra Cuvee de Reserve Brut — A well-balanced, perennial favorite.

Lete Vautrain Grand Reserve Brut — Pairs well with many foods including fish, white meat, appetizers, and desserts.

Piper Heidsieck Brut — A classic, full-bodied, highly approachable bubbly with tons of personality.

Philipponnat Royale Reserve N/V — Fine bubbles with an elegant finish. Highly regarded. *93 points - Wine Enthusiast.

Four Sparkling Wines Worth Tasting

These sparkling wines are great options that will also be easier on your wallet, and we think are great bubbles to fill any flute. Cheers!

Roederer Estate Brut — Crisp, elegant, California sparkling wine from the producers of Louis Roederer of Champagne. Highly recommended. 

Schramsberg 'Mirabelle' Brut — A multi-vintage brut sparkling from California. Enjoy this young, bright bubbly crisp acidity that pairs well with food: oysters on the half shell, sushi, baked halibut, cheeses and cream-based pasta dishes.

Mumm Napa Prestige Brut — From Napa Valley comes this medium-bodied sparkling wine that displays an excellent mousse and a rich, lingering finish.

Drappier Brut Carte D'Or — Try this sparkling, non-vintage wine made in Germany. Semi-sweet with flavors of pear, white peach, and honeydew, perfect for a celebratory toast, and at a terrific price point. *93 Points - Wine Advisory Board.

If these don't inspire you to pop the cork, perhaps you'd enjoy some further inspiration:
