Bernard Bremont Grand Cru NV ($69.99) - there are 3 levels of grape quality in Champagne - entry level, premier cru, and the rarest and highest quality, grand cru. This champagne is 100% grand cru and offers extraordinary value for money!
"Bernard Brémont captures the poise and power of Ambonnay in a style that contrasts pear and apple fruit with the roast hazelnut complexity of bottle age. Acidity and dosage meld in a harmonious finish, energised by the fine chalk minerality of the village, with just a touch of phenolic grip closing."
92 points - Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2018 - 2019
Champagne Collet Brut NV ($74.99) - aged for a minimum of three years in ideal conditions in one hundred-year-old chalk cellars, more than double the minimum aging period required. Champagne Collet is a blend of all three champagne varieties, Chardonnay (30%), Pinot Noir (20%), with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier (50%) adding extra fragrance and fruit to the palate. Complex and stylish.

Ruinart Rose NV ($129.99) - Ruinart is a firm favourite amongst many Sommeliers and Wine experts. They are known for exceptional fruit quality, intensity and balance. Ruinart is the oldest continuously producing Champagne house, and actually made the first Rose champagne. Ever.
“A delicious Champagne full of rose petal, wheat, cherry and citrus notes, all supported by a vivid acidity and chalky texture. An innate sense of power on a lightweight frame. Lengthy finish.” Wine Spectator (90 Points)
