Poll: What’s Your Favourite Champagne House?

There are many champagne houses in existence, from the ultra-premium down to the more supermarket-friendly and price-aware.

Champagne has been made for many hundreds of years, and some of the champagne houses currently active have even been around, and producing bubbles since 1522 (Philipponnat). At the other end of the spectrum, we have Dosnon & Lepage, who began life in 2007.

But which is your favourite champagne house, and why?

In the poll below, you can select your top three champagne houses. In the comments section (at the bottom of this page) you can also leave a little summary of which you chose – or didn’t choose – and why.

Please add a comment at the bottom to request any house or brand which isn’t currently listed, should you wish to cast a vote for a different producer.

  17. Janisson-Baradon Et Fils for shure

  18. Each of these small innovative family producers follows their own path to make authentic quality champagnes which reflect their terroir. They master the science of winemaking without being slaves to industry & commerce

  19. Janisson-Baradon Et Fils of course !
    A great memory to me, hoping to taste it again soon 🙂

  20. how about adding drappier ?

  21. and would you mind putting them into alphabetical order? the new ones as well?

    • Robin Scott

      Philippe Gonet has been added to the poll. The order cannot be changed once the poll has been opened, unfortunately, however, we shall reintroduce a new poll later this week which takes into account all of your suggestions, owing to the success of this one. Until then, feel free to vote in the current version.

  22. I am missing
    Philippe Gonet!

  23. Hm, I try to vote and it says I can only choose 1.

    In any case, three is too few, there are some great choices here….

    • Robin Scott

      This has now been fixed – it reset upon the previous update. Without starting a new poll (which we may well do in the near future as there has been a lot of interest in this one!), we’ll have to stick with just three choices for the time being.

      Perhaps a “Choose Your Top Ten” would be a good idea for any future poll?

      • Marc Adchampagnes

        Very good idea Robin. Very pleased to see Boutique Champagnes taking the lead. It is about time!
        Good work

  24. Jacques Selosse, Jérôme Prévost, Ulysse Collin

    • Oh fail. That wasn’t how to vote. Well, Ulysse Collin is needed, maybe add Cedric Bouchard, Larmandier-Bernier, Gaston Chiquet, Georges Laval..?

      • Robin Scott

        Cedric Bouchard, Larmandier-Bernier, Gaston Chiquet, Georges Laval – all now included in the poll above. Ulysse Collin is also listed. Please request any further additions too.

    • Robin Scott

      Ulysse Collin has been added to the above poll Рboth Jacques Selosse and J̩r̫me Pr̩vost were already included Рyou are welcome to cast your vote above!

  25. Well, difficult choice, La Grande Année is great but also at the same level André Jacquart Mesnil blanc de blans, Salon (of course) and good ones too Extra Brut Janisson-Baradon and Jacquesson, a cherry cake!

    • Robin Scott

      It is a very difficult choice, but interesting to see a lot of like-minded voting for some “lesser lights” – it might well be time for some more champagne tastings based upon the good reports we are hearing.

  26. What a great poll! How do I participate?

    You should add Egly-Ouriet, J. Lassaigne, Vouette & Sorbée…

    • Robin Scott

      Thank you for your suggestions – all three have been added to the poll – taking the total to 90 different champagne houses / brands.

  27. Veuve Fourny, Déhu,

  28. could you add janisson baradon et fils

  29. I was born in Reims and I have had the chance to taste many different champagne on many diferent occasion. Pol Roger and Bollinger are unrivalled as far as consistent quality are concerned.

    Andre Jacquart is a very recent and very promising experience.

  30. before i take my vote can you andre jacquart from le mesnil (best blc de blc NV) as well as jaques selosse (the godfather) and jerome prevost (amazing 100% pinot meunier)
