Champagne under $50

Not all the Sparkling Wines are Champagne.  Even though I am a lover of Sparkling wines. I have to recognize that, Champagne is the king of bubbles. I do not often enjoy Champagne as I more frequently enjoy other Sparkling Wines but for New Years Eve, of course Champagne will be on my lineup.

Let’s revisit a bit this type of wine. Champagne is only made in Champagne, France, a town outside of Paris. All the other ones that are called Method Champegnoise, Sparkling Wines or Method Traditionale are not Champagne so heads up for your next Champagne purchase. Always review where is it produce -the region- as labels are often confussing.

I had the idea that Champagne was very expensive. I did some research within this category of wine, and realized an extensive tasting. I am going to recommend you good quality price Champagnes under $50.

  • Andre Jacquart Brut Experience Blanc de Blans $45.99

Brilliant pale gold, with tight bead and ersistent mousse. Chardonnay green pear apple and toasted bread on the nose, with distinct wet stone minerality. Lush creamy mousse upon entry, rich full and crisp, with warm toasty elements. Explosive aged Chardonnay elements, intense minerality and great depth of flavor. Length and persistence of Burgundian style Chardonnay in the finish. Regardless of whether a festive occasion, aperitif high class, or with dinner, it deserves to be enjoyed with delicate dishes such as a Sole “Meuniere,” steamed lobster, or halibut.

“This ripe, soft wine is well balanced and offers attractive fruitiness. The creamy mousse and acidity bring richness and a fresh character. With its finely judged dosage, not too dry, not too sweet, the wine is very ready to drink.” -Wine Enthusiast
