Nine outstanding Champagnes over £50

2 Champagne Pannier Egérie de Pannier 2006

It was something of a revelation at the end of this year’s Champagne Masters to find out that one of the highest-scoring samples of the day’s tasting was from a cooperative-grower called Champagne Pannier.

Not only that, but a fizz costing less than half the price of other similarly-rated Champagnes, despite the fact the Egérie de Pannier represents the very top expression from this producer.

Gaining 97 points out of a possible 100, the prestige cuvée from Pannier delivers a delicious combination of complementary flavours, from lemon and honey, to toast and grilled nuts, along with an uplifting, lasting and very fresh, dry finish.

Costing £75, the Egérie de Pannier may not be cheap, but does offer something of a value option relative to other special blends in this top-end Champagne category.

Approximate retail price: £75
