Best Value Champagnes on Wine-Searcher:
Let's talk about André Chemin for a moment. This small producer, based in Sacy, between Reims and Epernay, began in 1948 and now has 6.5 hectares of premier cru vineyards. It makes 55,000 bottles a year and many people will never have heard of it. However, the results are striking. The Premier Cru Tradition Brut has a critic score of 97 (from the Decanter World Wine Awards) and a global average price of just $29, which is value in anyone's book.
The next two wines have scores of 95 and 92, and average prices of $29 and $37, respectively. In fact, of all the producer's wines listed on Wine-Searcher, the lowest score is 92 and the highest price is $37, so Andre Chemin is a name well worth seeking out.
