100 Best Champagnes for 2016


FINE Champagne and tastingbook.com select the World’s Best Champagne – The winner is Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle

FINE Champagne magazine, the international publication devoted to champagne and tastingbook.com, the World's largest wine information source, announce their list of the ‘100 Best Champagnes for 2016’.

After days of blind-tasting hundreds of champagnes, the final results were tabulated. Any champagne making it into the Top 100 in the rigorous tasting by our editorial board and guest specialists can warmly be recommended. Still, there can only be one winner.

In 2010 the title was given to Armand de Brignac Brut Gold NV, in 2011 to Piper-Heidsieck Rare 2002, in 2012 to Taittinger Comtes de Champagne 2000, in 2013 to Charles Heidsieck Vintage 2000, in 2014 to Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 2002 and last year to Ruinart Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002.

This year awards a multi-vintaged prestige cuvée as Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle claims the title of ‘Best Champagne for 2016’.
