Top 10 Prestige "Tete de Cuvee" Champagnes
Prestige cuvées represent a Champagne house's finest offerings. Dom Pérignon 1921 is considered to be the first prestige cuvée, having been released in 1936. Although Louis Roederer Cristal was produced earlier, it was initially made for the Russian tsar's private consumption and was not released publicly until 1945. Many of the Champagnes on our list are vintage-dated and only produced in the most exceptional years. While one of our selections costs more than $2,000, most can be bought for $200 or less, making them perfect for anniversaries and other special occasions.
