No Christmas is complete with the sound of a POP as the festive fizz gets opened. So we’ve taste tested this year’s best festive champagne and prosecco from the UK’s leading supermarkets. Take a look at our top fizz including who is our winner in this year’s 2021 festive fizz taste test. We were kindly sent these for our taste test.
Below are the results of our festive taste test 2021:
Tesco Finest Premier Cru Champagne, £21.00 – BUY HERE
The first-place winner of our fizz category undoubtedly goes to Tesco Finest Premier Cru Champagne. Our tasters said this was full and fruity and had a good depth to it, they all said it had more chardonnay taste was not at all acidic. The balance of green apple, citrus to sweet brioche ticked every single box – poor us two more!
Co-op Les Pionniers Non Vintage Champagne, 75cl, £19.00 – BUY HERE
Stampeding in at second place in our taste test is the Co-op Les Pionniers Non Vintage Champagne, 75cl, and for undr £20 which we felt was amazing had a fresh, elegant and had a real apple flavour to it which gave a nice balance. The 12% smooth chardonnay wine wasn’t bitter (no cheek pulling) and would make the ideal Christmas morning glass of fizz.
Sainsbury’s Blanc de Noirs Champagne, £21.00 – BUY HERE
This delicate and fresh champagne had a lovely colour and our testers said was very elegant. Each sip you could taste rich red fruits, berries and even a warm toasted biscuity taste, the perfect buffet pleaser and would hold up against any other £30-£40 bottle.
Aldi Specially Selected Nebbiolo D’Alba Sparkling Rose Brut – BUY HERE
This sparkling red fruits Brut is one Rose lovers will fall head over heels for it is packed with fruity tangy flavours of raspberries and had a crisps taste, although some of our testers said it was on the dry side, they felt it had a good balance, lovely colour, left the pallet feeling fresh and had a long lingering finish.
Tesco Finest Prosecco, £8.00 – BUY HERE
Prosecco for the morning – yes please! We really enjoyed thie rich fruity prosecco, it had a sophisticated taste of pear and peach and didn’t leave us with any acid. Our testers said our only piece of advice – make sure it’s chilled.
Aldi Cremant DE Limoux Brut, £TBC – BUY HERE
Another hit with our tasters, Aldi’s Cremant DE Limoux is smooth and elegant to drink and had notes of light berries. Not sweet, but a nuce dry smooth taste, not sharp or acidic, this was one of our most well rounded bottles of fizz.
