Celebrate all year round with best-selling cheap champagnes

It’s easy to crack open a bottle and add some fizz to any occasion with cheap champagne, but how do you decide which is the best value for money? With winemakers competing every year to win the battle of the bubbly, here is how to find some great deals.

Cheap Champagne vineyards

Can cheap champagne really sparkle?

A common misconception about more cheap champagne is that it just won’t be as good. However, before you splash the cash on a bottle of Lanson or Bollinger, try a bottle of champagne that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. By finding smaller champagne producers that use a slightly lower quality of grape, wine merchants have been able to lower the cost of quality bottles year after year. With some bottles costing just over a tenner, you’ll be able to stockpile for Christmas, New Year, birthdays, or even just for a quiet night in!

Find the best bubbly for your budget

Grower champagne has recently become all the rage. These are champagnes made by small family producers that, as well as offering individuality, come at a fraction of the price. Of course, these estates don’t get the same attention that other larger champagne houses do, but there are a number to watch out for when you’re browsing on a budget. Try Chartogne-Taillet, Benoît Lahaye or Roses de Jeanne if you’re looking for something that stands out from the rest. With these unique champagnes, you’ll be able to engage with the glass in terms of the identity, history and production method of the liquid inside.

Grower champagne: a diversity of style

Just as there are mediocre wine houses, there are mediocre champagne houses too. This means that, although grower champagne doesn’t always guarantee a great bottle, you have some diversity of style when it comes to these smaller producers. And, even on a tight budget, you’ll be able to try a few of them before you find the one that’s right for you. Grower champagne houses are less confined by traditional methods of production, allowing them to push the stylistic boundaries concerning ripeness and dosage. This has influenced the way consumers are buying champagne and their perceptions of the famous region… all for the better!
