Champagne Brands worth Cellaring.

Champagne

Champagnes, unlike most other wines, are ready to drink upon release. However, a few manufacturers’ brands benefit from additional cellaring. Generally, vintage champagnes cellar better than non-vintage.

In North America, champagnes must rest for at least four months after arrival from France. This rule holds for all offshore sparkling wines, since during transportation the carbon dioxide unsettles and requires rest to recompose at destination.

Below are some cellar-worthy champagnes brands:
