Below are the results of our festive taste test 2020:

ten out of ten ratingWaitrose Blanc de Noirs Champagne 75cl, £19.19

The first-place winner of our fizz category undoubtedly goes to Waitrose & Partners for its Blanc de Noirs Brut NV which is 12.5% ABV. Our tasters said this was full and fruity and had a good depth to it, they all said you could taste a biscuity flavour and not at all acidic. This excellent dry sparkling wine is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans and would be perfect with canapés.

Tesco Champagne Premier Cru £12.00

Tesco Champagne Premier Cru £12.00Stampeding in at second place in our taste test is the Tesco Champagne Premier Cru which we felt was fresh, elegant and had a real apple flavour to it which gave a nice balance.

The Champagne was soft and smooth on the palette and did have a nice crisp finish and at 12.5% it would be the ideal Christmas morning glass of fizz or even go alongside some smoked salmon!

eight point five out of ten ratingSainsbury’s Taste the Difference Conegliano Prosecco

Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Conegliano ProseccoThis delicate and fresh prosecco was a hit with our testers, they only felt as though it may be slightly on the crisp side for some.  The Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Conegliano Prosecco had lovely notes of citrus and tasty apricot which gave a nice balance and at 10.5% you could easily have two or three glasses of this fizz. This Sainsbury’s Prosecco is also suitable for vegans.

eight out of ten scoreM&S Classic NO.17 Italia Prosecco, £8

M&S has once again pulled it out of the festive sack as its prosecco had a lovely smooth texture and was well-rounded when it came to taste. You could taste the fruits of lemon, pear and apple and it gave a good kick of floral notes too. Very drinkable, but this may be too dry for some.
