14. NV Jacques Selosse Lieux-dits Les Chantereines Grand Cru Avize Extra Brut
Average price: $843
"Extra Brut" means the bubbly is basically unsweetened (less than 0.6% sugar per liter), which is a result of the fermentation process; the yeast is dried as much as it can possibly stand without killing it. Anselme Selosse, the maker, is renowned by wine critics for his attention to terrior -- the geography, geology, and climate where the grapes are grown. So you know that $800+ is so worth it. Probably.
