List of Grande Marque Champagne Prices

It never hurts to sanity check prices when shopping for champagne or ordering champagne at a restaurant.

A lot of factors impact price, especially different states or specific vintages, so don’t assume you’re getting ripped off just because a price is different from this list. But this will help give you an idea of the typical price ranges for the specific group of champagne houses that are best known as Les Grandes Marques.

This article will focus on retail prices. If you’re looking at a restaurant menu in the US, unfortunately you can expect the menu prices to be at least double – it’s a pet peeve when dining in the US compared to France, but that’s a discussion for another article.

Summary of Grande Marque Champagne by Price:

In the table below, I summarize the number of bottles available by price point in a recent survey (using data from USA retail stores). This is just a sample and doesn’t represent every bottling by the Grandes Marques houses. However, it does represent the most popular bottles that you would be most likely to find at retail stores in the USA.

How Many Grande Marque Champagne Houses Are There?

Only 24 brands are categorized as Grande Marque, and they represent some of the most famous champagne makers in the sparkling wine sector.

The term Grande Marque came to describe champagne produced by a small number of large and prestigious houses located in the Champagne region of France.

Many of these houses have been making champagne for centuries, and overall their wines tend to be recognized for consistency, quality, and aging potential.

What is a Grande Marque Champagne?

A Grande Marque Champagne is a champagne made by one of the major champagne houses, or Grandes Maisons, that have built a great brand and been historically designated as Grandes Marques, or “big brands” in French.

The collection of houses which are considered Les Grandes Marques are relatively large champagne producers with globally known brands. They typically have a reputation for quality in the champagne industry, but the term grande marque doesn’t really mean these Champagnes have higher quality compared to other smaller champagne producers. The grapes, production methods, and taste profile of a grande marque label are not different than other champagnes.

While some of these houses might claim to have unyielding customer loyalty or an infallible reputation, the main thing that they all have in common is a long history of producing and selling champagne.

In reality, the designation of a Grande Marque House represents international brand awareness as opposed to any specific technical definition or quality standard.

Visiting the Champagne Grandes Marques:

One advantage to being a large producer with more sales, more staff, and a bigger budget is that many of the Champagne Grandes Marques listed above are able to host visitors for a tasting and/or tour.

Not all of the producers listed above offer public tours, but many do. Trust me, it’s a super memorable experience to drink champagne in one of their famous cellars or caves, and even watch a champagne bottle come off the production line if they are operating during your visit.
