Shop for Champagne Wines

Whether you're looking for sparkling wine or Champagne, France is the leader in delicious bubbly, but true Champagne is definitely the Queen.

Sparkling wines from other parts of the world are sometimes referred to as "champagne," but real Champagne only comes from the defined appellation in the northeastern part of the country and can be made with only three permitted grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier. In addition, the Champagne method of production must be used, and thus all Champagnes undergo the second fermentation in the bottle, not in a tank.

For all of these reasons, Champagne reigns supreme above all lesser bubblies.

  1. Alfred Gratien Brut Champagne
    Alfred Gratien Brut Champagne

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#93094

    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2015
    Light, bright gold. Sexy smoke- and mineral-laced aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, plus with a suave floral overtone and a late hint of vanilla. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering pliant orange and yellow apple flavors and a bracing jolt of chalky minerals. Closes with repeating smokiness and strong thrust, leaving a subtle honey note behind.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2009
    The NV Brut is a wonderfully elegant, classy wine laced with perfumed fruit that carries through to the finish, where smoke and toastiness add further layers of complexity. This mid-weight Champagne is an impeccable wine at the non-vintage level. Disgorged: June, 2008, (not indicated on the label). Anticipated maturity: 2009–2013. This is an impressive set of wines from Alfred Gratien. The wines are notable for their sheer class and refinement.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2000
    Strong mousse. Fresh, floral aromas of apple, mint, toast and cumin. Lively and intensely flavored; concentrated and round. An attractive middle-of-the-road style, with enticing ripeness of fruit and moderate dosage. Finishes with good length.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2005
    A very lean, dry style that focuses on its acidity and green fruits. This makes it a style that needs good bottle aging — the sample tasted was too young. But for those who like dry, crisp Champagnes, this is beautifully made.
    SP8686 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 1998
    A firm-textured, lively tasting brut that combines fresh citrus notes with a crisp texture and a clean finish. Drink now through 2000.

    2004 / 750 ml. | Item#70819

    ST9292 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2011
    Pale, bright yellow. Impressively complex scents of lemon and lime, anise, sweet butter and chalk, with a hint of marzipan in the background. Dry and incisive, offering pure citrus and orchard fruit flavors complicated by honeysuckle and mineral nuances. Finishes with excellent clarity, length and lingering chalkiness.
    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2011
    An open-knit texture is focused by firm acidity while rich notes of leesy bread dough and smoky roast nut add depth to flavors of kumquat, tangy apple, white peach and lemon peel, with an aromatic finish. Disgorged January 2010. Drink now through 2019. 1,500 cases made.

    Ayala Brut Majeur

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#65146

    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2011
    There’s a firm, chalky edge to this minerally Champagne, and mouthwatering flavors of candied lemon peel, green apple, crystallized honey and biscuit. This has an elegant texture and an overall sense of style. Drink now through 2020.
    ST8989 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2009
    Bright yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of baked apple, pear skin, toasted nuts and brown spices. Rich and fleshy, offering palate-coating orchard fruit flavors and notes of allspice, herbs and toasty lees. Nicely blends sweetness and spiciness but finishes a bit abruptly, with an echo of dusty minerals.
    WS8989 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2009
    Lush red apple flavors and cool, leesy mineral character combine in this clean, full-bodied Champagne. Its gentle, slightly sweet fruit will match crab.
    WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2011
    Now owned by Bollinger, Ayala’s Champagnes have seen great improvement in recent years. This nonvintage Brut is complex, with its dry character given weight by a hind of toast, almonds and a taut aftertaste.
    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Dec 2010
    The NV Brut Majeur shows lovely balance in an approachable, up-front style well-suited to near-term drinking. Clean, mineral notes add a sense of proportion on the fresh, vibrant finish. The blend is 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, 80% of which is from the 2004 vintage, while the rest of the wine is composed of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reserve wines. Disgorged January, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2014.

  4. Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve
    Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#65454

    WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2011
    Made with a high proportion of Pinot Meunier, this is elegant, fruity, with plenty of good acidity and a wonderful floral character. It is so fruity, fresh, a wine for real enjoyment.
    WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
    This blend includes 40 percent pinot meunier, the balance equal parts pinot noir and chardonnay. Its remarkable fruitiness might be tied to the firm’s long, slow, cool fermentations, which, they believe, allow meunier to maintain its perfume. This is a graceful, vinous Champagne with dramatic high notes of roses and red fruit, finishing clean with a grounding of pale earthiness. It’s a lovely prediction of what Champagne might become in a warming climate.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2013
    Bright, with tangy acidity and a lively bead, this displays fruit-forward flavors of macerated apricot, pineapple and Granny Smith apple, with hints of ginger, biscuit and kumquat. Drink now through 2016.
    ST9090 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2013
    Light, bright gold. Fresh red berries, orange zest and white flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and precise, offering energetic redcurrant and blood orange flavors that show good concentration and a supple texture. A mineral nuance adds bite to the finish, with the floral note echoing.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Dec 2010
    The NV Brut Reserve is a beautiful wine graced with layers of exquisite, mineral laced citrus, pears and white peaches. I suppose this could use a little more length through the mid-palate, but it is nevertheless a strikingly beautiful, pure wine at this price point.

    SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2017
    A bright, lacy Champagne, offering a tapestry of finely woven flavors: graphite and ground spice, crushed blackberry and dried apricot, toast and honeycomb. Firm and focused, with a lasting, chalky finish. Drink now through 2027. 1,500 cases imported.
    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, October 4, 2017
    Super attractive lemon essence and lime pickle on the nose, with toasty warmth and some bright, almost tropical fruits. The palate has a very open and appealing feel. Deep flavors are delivered in a generous sweeping texture, with toasty rise at the finish. Drink young.

    ST9292 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2012
    Vivid orange-pink. Aromas and flavors of ripe red berries, candied rose and toasty lees. Fleshy but nervy and focused, with strong mineral cut and hints of bitter herbs on the very long, energetic finish. Smoothly blends richness and vivacity, making it extremely flexible with food or without.

  8. Champagne Andre Clouet Un jour de 1911…
    Champagne Andre Clouet Un jour de 1911…

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#86797

    RP93+93+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Dec 2010
    The NV Grand Cru Cuvee 1911 emerges from the glass with the most haunting of perfumes. Sweet rose petal and jasmine are some of the nuances that emerge over time. Despite recent disgorgement, the purity of the fruit and the extraordinary elegance of the mousse are hard to miss. This is an exceptional, elegant version of the 1911 that should drink beautifully for years to come. The bottle I tasted needed quite a bit of air to open up, so readers should be patient with the wine at this stage. The current release of the 1911 is 100% Pinot Noir, 50% 2002 vintage and 50% a solera blend that dates back to 1998. This is Lot L05, disgorged October 4, 2010 and bottled with dosage of 6 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2020.
    WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2010
    While showing more fruit girth than most Champagnes, this also has the austere mineral acidity to sculpt it into fine proportion and fantastic, weightless length. Its pinot flavors come through in floral apricot and juicy peach, both powerful and harmonious. For Nantucket Bay scallops or belly tuna sashimi.

    VN8888 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2015
    Light gold. Fresh melon, orange and peach on the fruity nose and in the mouth. Supple and broad on the palate, showing a hint of warmth on the back half. In an easygoing style, finishig with gentle cut and good length.

  10. Champagne Billecart-Salmon Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru
    Champagne Billecart-Salmon Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#79421

    WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2016
    Blended from fruit grown in several grand cru villages of the Côte des Blancs, with an emphasis on Avize, this is a beautiful green-gold color, a wine fragrant with scents of spring flowers. It balances full-bodied richness with racy acidity, both expansive and mineral-tight. It finishes on a scent that brings to mind oyster shells, and calls out for a dozen freshly shucked Belons.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2014
    Lightly toasty and creamy in texture, yet well-cut and vibrant throughout, this shows a minerally base note underscoring the flavors of poached pear, candied lemon zest, toasted brioche and pickled ginger. Drink now through 2020.
    WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2015
    The balance of this wine is immediately striking. Everything is in its place: the crisp apples, tight acidity and the mineral texture are all just right. It’s a delicious, perfumed and fragrant wine that is ready to drink with its light, poised aftertaste.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2015
    Light yellow-gold. High-pitched citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by notes of honeysuckle, lemongrass and chalky minerals. Spicy, focused and mineral-driven, with intense Meyer lemon, tangerine and pear skin flavors given depth by a hint of brioche. A note of smokiness builds on the finish, which hangs on with outstanding floral persistence.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2011
    The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru comes across as relatively soft and understated. Lemon, white flowers, spices and mint emerge gracefully from this feminine, attractive Blanc de Blancs. This is Lot L35200904011M. Disgorged September 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2015.
