The Best in Bubbles

The Best in Bubbles

by Westgarth Wines July 30, 2019

Champagne is the ne plus ultra of sparkling wine. From a tiny appellation with a marginal climate and a complex creation method, the plush wine with its trademark toasty magic is, well, cause to make a toast. If you buy premium wine you are probably prepared to spend a pretty penny—but how high does the price tag run? In a round up of the most expensive wines, one may find that Champagne actually offers high value. Moët & Chandon Esprit de Siècle Brut has the highest average price at around 11, 000 dollars a bottle, while Louis Roederer Cristal takes spots two and three with its Gold Medallion Orfeves Limited Edition Brut Millésime and Vinothèque Millésime Brut Rosé. Read on to see what fine sparkling wine makes up the rest of the top ten!
