Best bubblies for the buck

I buy champagne once a year and never really know what I'm buying.  Fortunately, the local liquor store heard about my perennial problem and emailed some suggestions, in a range of prices.  I think I'll go with the Blanc de Noirs ("white to black") which is made exclusively from Pinot Noir, my favorite red.
