Fizz That Doesn’t Cost A Fortune

Find champagne for less and more fizz that doesn't cost a fortune with our edit of quality sparkling wines at high street prices

Find champagne for less and more fizz that doesn’t cost a fortune with our edit of quality sparkling wines at high street prices, from Waitrose to Lidl. Of course, this is especially important now that there is potentially a shortage of prosecco about to hit, with rumours sending Facebook and Twitter into meltdown this week…

Fizz isn’t all about Champagne, prosecco and cava – we love some of the lesser known names too. Our top picks include Moscato for sparkling on the sweeter side, Sauvignon Blanc for a floral fizz and a crisp sparkling English rosé at a great price.

These aren’t just for toasting and celebrations. Fizz is perfect as a base for cocktails too! Forget the classic Champagne cocktail, Mimosa and Kir Royale – we love it with a sprig of fresh mint, a slice of green apple and a dash of elderflower cordial.

The delicate flavours lend themselves effortlessly to both sweet and savoury dishes. Our smoked salmon and caviar blinis are delicious with a classic French Champagne, but why not try a Moscato Spumante with fig and black olive tapenade crostini?

Sparkling rosé wines are a fab pairing with most desserts, especially in fruity summer puddings. Lighter rosé wine’s will pair well with this show-stopping strawberry charlotte and the darker, heavier rosé’s are a great match for some indulgent chocolate brownies.

Don’t forget these aren’t just for drinking! Any of these will be delicious in some of our favourite dinner party pudding recipes too. Try raspberry and pink champagne jelly for a real treat. At these prices, you don’t need any excuses to pop a bottle or two this weekend!

This Tesco finest* Vintage Champagne (pictured) is £25 the perfect fizz for Christmas or a special occasion. It’s nicely mature, made entirely from the Chardonnay grape. 2009 was a warm vintage and this is quite a forward style that’s ready to drink.
