When people ask me about Champagne, I tell them to forget what they think they know and to ignore any brand recognition that comes to mind. My rationale is simple: in wine, and particularly Champagne, the big names all come with hefty price tags, and part of what you pay for is to cover advertising costs. That is just a fact. The secret I tell my customers is to focus on small domains that make high quality Champagne at wonderful prices. These wines are very hard to find, but oh so worth the search. Most never make it to America. The best way to do this is to carefully examine the label. There are two tiny letters that appear on either the front label or rear labels. These letters will indicate whether the Champagne was produced by a large négociant, or whether it was crafted by one of the smaller, independent growers that literally control every production aspect “from the vine to the wine.” So what are the letters to look for? They’re NM (négociant-manipulant) and RM (récoltant-manipulant). But let’s simplify it for you, think of NM as “not mine” and RM: as “really mine.”
The RM Champagnes are also known as Grower’s Champagnes and they represent stunning quality at exceptional prices. These are the pride of France and thusly, never make it outside of the country. Ace Champagne critic Ed McCarthy, who has written hundreds of articles on the region, breaks down the reasons for why most Grower’s Champagnes stay in France, “The whole idea of a grower independently making its own Champagne from the grapes it grows seems a lot more romantic than a huge company buying grapes from many sources and producing a vast amount of branded Champagne. But the reality is that most Grower Champagnes are sold in France; in fact, much of these Champagnes are sold at the grape farmers’ cellar doors. Many French citizens make an annual trip to their favorite grower(s) to buy Champagne and drive off with it in the trunks of their cars.
