Its always been assumed that the more you spend on a bottle of vino, the better quality the liquid will be.
After all, much of the price is wrapped up in tax, packaging and shipping costs – leaving very little left for the actual production of the wine itself.
But Aldis £10.99 champagne is proving that someones, you can pick up a bottle that is both cheap and delicious.
Its bestselling Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut has just been awarded a silver outstanding medal at this years International Wine and Spirits Challenge.
And this isnt even the drinks first award. This year, its won three international titles alone; seven other bottles from the budget store picked up silver medals this particular competition, as well as the 11 which won bronze.
The Veuve Monsigny is produced by Champagne house Philizot et Fils and is supposed to have a fruity flavour with floral hints.
Sparkling wine can only be called Champagne if its produced in the Champagne region of France; the name has no real indication of quality but rather a particular method and area fingerprint.
There are plenty of other delicious, cheap sparkling wines out there – from Muscado to English Sparkling. But if you do like the bready-taste of Champagne and you dont have a spare £50 knocking around to buy a bottle of Lanson, Aldi might be your best bet.
