December 23, 2015: The Houses of Champagne

If you plan to drink Champagne this New Year's Eve, you'll find a wide range of unique sparkling options from grower Champagnes to vintage cuvées to limited-release bottles. But if you're looking for consistency while ringing in 2016, Champagne's non-vintage bottlings offer a reliable version from year to year. They provide a good introduction to a particular Champagne house, often at significantly lower prices than the house's vintage-dated bottlings and tête de cuvées. Look to senior editor Alison Napjus' annual tasting report in the Dec. 15 issue for over 425 Champagne recommendations.

Which big Champagne house makes your go-to non-vintage bottling?
