One of the problems at smaller champagne houses, like Guy Faucheret, is their limited volume. When we spent a week in Epernay a couple of years ago several we visited were sold out to the Chinese and the Germans and had not a single bottle to sell. Good for them (I guess), but sad for the rest of us. Another problem, as Jerome has mentioned, is these smaller houses often do not export outside the EU. Have checked with a couple of the bigger wine sellers in the U.S. and don't have or know who might. Visiting the "Champagne Region" is the best we can do.

Au contraire, Dave. Even you could tell the difference. Seriously.
