They didn't do the one we like, J. Roget, extra dry, probably because it's only about $3-4/bottle! But it's the only one under $30 that doesn't give us a headache.

Cristal is missing from this list... tsk, tsk. It's tops on mine. I also have a soft spot for Chandon Blanc de Noirs, our wedding champagne.
