6 Champagnes to Celebrate

1 of 4

It’s summertime, and the living’s easy.

The sun comes out, and the parties start. Whether it’s romantic dates under the stars, garden weddings or anniversaries, this is the occasion for Champagne. There’s no better time to enjoy great bubbles.

Champagne, the king of sparkling wines, doesn’t have to be a budget breaker. It comes in many styles and price points. Whether a major anniversary or graduation, even if you’re ordering by the case, there’s a wine to suit your palate and your pocketbook.

I’ve been doing some pleasant research, searching out my favorite Champagnes for this year’s big moments.

Grower Champagnes—those produced by winemakers from their own vineyards—can represent a great balance between quality and price because there’s no marketing budget to support, but the famous brands, some produced in the millions of bottles, can also provide impressively good value.

Here’s my take on the best Champagnes to drink this summer.
