10 outstanding Pinot Noirs from £10-50

10. £30-£50: Sparkling: Champagne Philipponnat, Blanc de Noirs, 2012

This pure Pinot Noir fizz proves Champagne without Chardonnay can be great. Hailing from a rising star brand in the heart of Champagne’s top communes for Pinot – Aÿ, Mareuil and Avenay – Phlipponnat’s Blanc de Noirs is about as good as Blanc de Noirs can get under £50, particularly when made from the fruits of the outstanding 2012 vintage.
