"Safest" champagne of these 3 NV? Veuve Clicquot YL, Louis Roederer Brut, or Taittinger Prelude?

I'm going to a dinner party and would like to purchase a mid-priced bottle of brut champagne that most people will like and that will go with most foods. It can't be too extreme; it has to have wide appeal. I don't know what food will be served but I'm sure there's going to be a lot of variety.

My local liquor store does not carry a lot of champagne. From what I saw, all of the options are from big name houses. There are a lot of cheap sparkling wines for $10-$15 (the big names, Martini Rossi etc.) which I know won't interest my friends and a few Vintage options for over $100, which are out of my price range.

What I'm looking at are the options I posted in this topic's subject line. In addition to those 3, the store carries Moet & Chandon White Star (which I'm not crazy about) and Taittinger La Francaise (which I think is ok, but I've heard Prelude, which I have not had, is significantly better).

Any help/advice/opinons would be much appreciated!
