Piper Heidsieck Champagne Brut
Named one of Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines, Piper Heidsieck Champagne Brut tops this list as our favorite cheap Champagne. A blanc de noir, this wine is made primarily of Pinor Noir, with a touch of Pinot Meunier for added complexity. As a brut, this Champagne has a crisp, dry finish without any sweetness despite the soft, mellow flavors. It has notes of smoke and toast on the nose, and a full fruit-forward flavor that finishes with a hint of citrus and ginger. This wine will also hold up to a few years in the wine cellar, in case you're hoping to save some for later.
