Salon champagne - one of the many recommended champagne houses.

Here is a list of recommended champagnes, as chosen by Tyson Stelzer – these are the top champagne houses.

Instead of memorising a massive list of individual wines, it’s much easier to remember a list of champagne houses (or recommended champagne brands). Tyson has chosen these brands on the strength of their current cuvées, not some amazing 50-year-old wine you will probably never get to try. Roughly, to rate 10 out of 10, the entry non-vintage cuvée of the house would typically score 95/100, the vintage around 96, and the prestige cuvée, 97.

For a 5 out of 10 house, these typically drop to 91, 93 and 94. Silver medal wines in a wine show.

History and reputation count for nothing if current wines don’t live up to expectation. Only houses scoring at least 5 out of 10 are listed.Tyson Stelzer
