Even though times have been hard, we must reach for positivity and find reasons to celebrate life. Whether at small reunions with friends or family gatherings, it’s always time for a little glass of champagne. To make those moments even more special, make sure you choose the best champagne available in the market. Here’s a list of the top 10 best champagne brands.

MÖET & CHANDON

Considered by many the best champagne brand in the world, the LVMH brand is also the best-selling champagne brand. Möet & Chandon has ambassadors that include Scarlett Johansson and Roger Federer and is the sponsorship of some of the world’s best events. With that background, it’s no surprise that the luxury brand is top of the list.

VEUVE CLICQUOT

The versatile French brand seems to be everywhere – from classic polo parties to rappers’ lyrics. Maybe that feature explains the podium at number two in our list. 

NICOLAS FEUILLATTE 

Nicolas Feuillatte is the best-selling champagne brand in the drink’s homeland of France, but it comes in third in the world. It is also one of the youngest in terms of champagne brands, founded in 1976.

G.H.MUMM

With Usain Bolt as their CEO (chief entertainment officer), G. H. Mumm is taking the business of celebrating and entertaining very seriously. As the fourth highest-selling champagne brand, it’s no surprise they are in the mood to celebrate.

LAURENT-PERRIER 

Founded in 1812, the house is iconic and has a low-calorie champagne brand recommended by the fashion crowd – including Kate Moss. As Charles Dickens once said, “Champagne is one of the elegant extras in life”.

TAITTINGER

One of the most famous family-run champagne brands, Taittinger comes in at number six. It’s one of the few family-run businesses on our list and it is the Chardonnay blends that really set the brand apart from the rest. If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for? 

POMMERY 

In 1856 Madame Pommery launched the successful champagne business with the help of Henry Vasiner, a financial advisor, and Adolphe Hubinet, a 23-year-old business director. The rest is history and now Pommery is the seventh best-selling champagne brand worldwide.

PIPER-HEIDSIECK

Marilyn Monroe’s favorite champagne brand, Piper-Heidsieck champagne is one of the most iconic luxury brands and a preference among fashion and luxury lifestyle brands. No wonder it’s still doing rather well today – after all, how many brands can say that Marilyn Monroe was their fan?

LANSON 

Founded in 1760, the Lanson house blends its champagne with pinot noir and chardonnay for taste. With over 500 hectares of vines in Champagne, Lanson uses the best grapes from the best plots to create a top 10 best-selling champagne brand.

CANARD-DUCHÊNE

This highly-regarded champagne brand is affordable and delicious. Based in Ludes, in the Montagne de Reims National Park, the house has been providing champagne since 1868. Not only have they made it into the top ten bestseller list, but they were also granted the right by the Russian Imperial Family to adopt its coat of arms as the family emblem. The crowned two-headed eagle has thus appeared on every Canard-Duchêne label since the end of the 19th century.
