Wine Find: Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve Champagne (Handout photo / December 31, 2012)

It's hard to find a true Champagne that isn't at least good to drink. That's why they're a splurge, even in the least expensive category: non vintage brut reserve. However, Charles Heidsieck's version has long been a standout in the category. It's a full-bodied style of Champagne — with a smooth, creamy texture and the classic Champagne flavors of yeast, nuts and fresh-baked bread. Its complexity level is rare among its peers.
