Red wine lovers rejoice! Made purely from Black Grapes, this is fruity and unique from most other Champagne which makes this the top of our festive fizz taste test. Our panel said it was deliciously fruity and fizzy with a hint of biscuity notes.
Coming in at a whopping 12%, this is the perfect aperitif and ideal for those who might not normally enjoy green grape Champagne.

ASDA Extra Special English Sparkling Brut
ASDA’s English Sparkling Brut has quite a crisp, fresh taste. To taste there was apple and hints of citrus however this was balanced out well with some ripe/rich fruit. This would go well with seafood however may not go just as well with chicken or turkey.

Tesco Finest Prosecco Doc
This elegant prosecco has a light but slightly sweet taste. With tasting notes of peach, pear and citrus, this Brut is ideal to go with any starter, however it can leave a little too much of a crisp bite afterwards.
BUY HERE Tesco Finest Prosecco Doc, £8.00
ASDA Extra Special Asti Sparkling Wine
Asti Sparking Wine is slightly less alcohol at 7% compared to other fizz, however this does not compromise on taste at all. If you are on the look out for a more sweeter drink then ASDA’s Asti is for you. Drinking this is sweet on the palette and has tasting notes of sweet grapes. Highly
recommend to go with a dessert!
