The world's only Champagne Magazine have reached the milestone of 10th Anniversary!

To celebrate that, we have launched the special 170 pages 10-year Anniversary -issue!

The time has come to celebrate 10 years of FINE Champagne magazine! The first magazine was born in 2008 at a turbulent time for Champagne, when the economic crisis hit the global markets. The champenois had tough decisions to make. How much to produce of the 2008 vintage, whose quality was undeniably great but the times ahead looked particularly dark? The bravest or most financially stable houses went ahead with full speed, filling up the cellars to the maximum with prestige cuvées destined to develop into some of Champagne’s all time finest.

The ageing of the 2008s has proven to be slow yet graceful and many houses such as Louis Roederer and Dom PОrignon chose to release their 2009s first, giving much needed extra time for the tight, pure and racy 2008s. Today, ten years after, many of the iconic cuvées are finally ready to see the daylight.

With rising global enthusiasm for fine Champagne, the best 2008s are now taking the market by an unprecedented storm. Louis Roederer Cristal, Dom Pérignon, Bollinger La Grande Année, Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame and Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill represent some of the greatest commercial and vinous success stories with big leaps in prices yet inexhaustible demand. The potential is undeniable and not yet realised to the fullest extent. Hence many chef de caves are hanging on to a big chunk of their stocks with plans to release longer aged and late-disgorged versions of them.

While waiting for the 2008s to mature to their prime, FINE Champagne offers its annual ranking of the 100 Best Champagnes, which cherishes both the wines’ current enjoyability as well as their future potential. I am proud to present the lush and exuberant Dom PОrignon Rosé 2006 as our wine of the year! In addition to the entire delicious TOP 100, we will also take a look back to all of our glorious past winners since 2010.

With a magazine bursting with exquisite champagnes, we raise a glass to 10 years of FINE Champagne!
