Top 10 Prestige "Tete de Cuvee" Champagnes

Luxury in a Bottle

GAYOT's Top 10 Prestige Champagnes are full of the best bottles money can buy

The Best Champagnes in the World

What separates prestige cuvées from the less expensive offerings of a Champagne house? "Tête de cuvée" Champagnes are made from the finest vineyards (premier cru and grand cru) and only during the best vintage years. Grapes are often handpicked and sorted, ensuring the quality of the fruit. Moreover, prestige cuvées spend more time aging, resulting in greater complexity and integration. To top it all off, Champagne producers package them in luxurious bottles and boxes designed for maximum effect. Ranging in price from $100 to nearly $500, GAYOT's Top 10 Prestige Champagnes are some of the highest quality sparkling wines available. They're perfect for celebrating anniversaries and other special occasions.
