The Best Champagnes Under $30

When we talk about affordable Champagne, we're not referring to the cheap sparkling wines that fill supermarket refrigerators. We mean the real thing — bubbly from the Champagne region of France, made from one or more of the following grape varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. While this world-famous wine is highly regulated, reasonably priced options are available. In fact, each of GAYOT's Top 10 Affordable Champagnes can be purchased for less than $30. With prices so low, you can throw a sparkling party without breaking the bank.
