Any champagne making it into the Top 100 in the rigorous blind tasting of some 300 champagnes by our editorial board and guest specialists can warmly be recommended. FINE Champagne magazine’s aim with this annual ranking is to taste the vast offering on the international markets in order to select the champagnes that are showing best this very moment. The most important criterion is the quality of the wine and its accessibility today.
