Interesting Which? survey on sparkling for Christmas:
from Which? report

Bargain bubbly brings Christmas cheer
There’s no need to splash out on expensive champagne with the supermarket own brand bubbles on offer, says Which?
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne Brut NV (90%, £31.91) topped the list in the consumer champion’s test* of champagnes, but Sainsbury’s Blanc Noirs Champagne Brut NV was only one per cent behind and around half the price at £15.98.
H Blin & Co Champagne Brut NV from Oddbins also scored 89 per cent (£24.99) and supermarket The Co-operative followed closely behind with its Les Pionniers Champagne Brut (88%, £15.55).
One disappointment was Moët and Chandon’s Brut NV which came 13th out of the 14 champagnes tested (79%). The experts weren’t impressed by its “slightly medicinal” aroma or “aggressive acidity”.
Which? also compared sparkling wines** and found the £8.99 Bluff Hill Brut (87%), from M&S, was the best. The “vibrant citrus” scent and “well-balanced and refreshing” flavour impressed the experts. Graham Beck Brut from Waitrose also performed well (86%, £12.99).
The Griffith Park Sparkling Brut (85%), available from Morrisons and Asda, and Aldi’s Phillippe Michel Cr!mant du Jura Brut (85%) were both scored as exceptional value at under £7.
Martyn Hocking, Editor, Which? magazine, says:
“With the party season ahead of us it’s great to know that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get a good quality champagne. Sainsbury’s own brand is a corker.
“It’s also worth considering sparkling wines which can keep the party flowing at only a fraction of the cost.”
