Champagne Blend High End Collectibles

The sparkling wines of Champagne have been revered by wine drinkers for hundreds of years, and even today they maintain their reputation for excellence of flavor and character, and are consistently associated with quality, decadence, and a cause for celebration. Their unique characteristics are partly due to the careful blending of a small number of selected grape varietals, most commonly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. These grapes, blended in fairly equal quantities, give the wines of Champagne their wonderful flavors and aromas, with the Pinot Noir offering length and backbone, and the Chardonnay varietal giving its acidity and dry, biscuity nature. It isn't unusual to sometimes see Champagne labeled as 'blanc de blanc', meaning it is made using only Chardonnay varietal grapes, or 'blanc de noir', which is made solely with Pinot Noir.
Below is an ever-changing listing of wines that we consider to be “collectible”, wines that are rare, exceptional, back-vintage gems, or a combination of the 3. Many are list-only wines, which are not normally offered for retail. These wines, which make great gifts, will improve from additional bottle age, when properly stored, and may show the greatest potential to increase in value. All are in-stock with very, very limited quantity. Every one of these spectacular wines was purchased from private sellers and has undergone very strict vetting for provenance, authenticity and condition.
