Carries Champagnes from Roederer, including Cristal as well as the excellent wines of Billecart-Salmon. The Rose non-vintage from this house is one of the best. Bollinger is another great brand they carry.

Purveyors of Taittinger. Their prestige Comtes de Champagne is one of the finest Blanc de Blancs (100 percent Chardonnay). They used to carry the Rose version, but I haven’t seen any recently.

This shop has gone into Champagne in a big way starting with Jacquesson. Now, the store carries Bruno Paillard, Ayala, and Delamotte. But their crown jewel is the ultra-exclusive Salon. Note though that Delamotte gets first pick of all the fruit rejected by Salon so if you’d rather not splurge on Salon, try Delamotte.

This is perhaps the best place to find older vintages of Champagne. They have  Dom Pérignon and Pol Roger, and they also carry the rather scarce vintage wines of Krug—including what is probably  the most expensive Champagne of all, Krug Clos d’Ambonnay. Dom Pérignon is widely distributed and, in fact, can even be found in supermarkets. Be wary of storage conditions, though.
