This bottling is sure to please people who want an affordable but authentic Champagne. Made with grapes from estate-owned vineyards in Damery, near Epernay, the cuvee is a blend of one-third each Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. In the glass, a fine mousse exudes subtle floral and pear aromas that give way to rich, yeasty notes. On the palate, expect citrus, apple, baked brioche and toasted almond flavors with a clean, acid-balanced, lingering finish. It is well suited for sipping as an aperitif, with hors d'oeurves or with anything from dinner to dessert. Buy it at: Cost Plus World Markets. — Brenda Maitland
