Champagne Wines

France Champagne.jpg

The history of Champagne goes back centuries though the conception of the wine that we today associate with the region dates roughly from the 1600s. As with Burgundy , the first wines were produced by monks: Dom Perignon and Dom Ruinart being the two most recognisable names today. It’s association with prestige and royalty dates back to around the same period.


The top branded Champagnes are arguably the best marketed wines in the World; synonymous with celebration and excess, what is occasionally forgotten is quality. Champagne, at its best, is without question the finest sparkling wine made anywhere in the world and, at its very best, is one of the World’s most important wines, sparkling or not. Even the best non-vintage Champagne, especially if bottled in magnum, will benefit from a couple of years in the cellar, sometimes more, and it is so much more than a drink for celebration.


Traditionally dominated by the big names, recent years have seen the increasing popularity of “growers’” Champagnes, with an increasing number of vignerons choosing to vinify and bottle their own wines as opposed to selling their fruit to the larger houses. This can be compared to Burgundy, and the wines frequently have something of the Burgundian about them, and a little more individual character to them than the grandes marques. That said, the best of the large Champagne houses are producing wines of remarkable quality: the bar is very, very high these days.

At the top, Krug, Dom Perignon and Cristal lead the field along with Salon and, of course, Pol Roger’s Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill. DP frequently stuns with its quality, year in, year out, as does Krug, which along with Sir Winston, can be one of the region’s longest-lived wines.


That Champagne ages particularly well is something often overlooked as the wine is so delicious young and seemingly so plentiful. Look for mature Champagne on the market, though, and it is frequently hard, sometimes impossible and almost always expensive to fine fully mature examples of the top wines in any quantity. In magnum, the ideal format for ageing the best, they are even rarer. With this in mind some view the best young Champagnes as an investment opportunity and this could well be the case.
