New Year's Sparkling Wine Recommendations

I know next to nothing about champagne or sparkling wine, but I do know I'd like to have a bottle that costs more than $3.99 for my little gathering. But not much more than that. Luckily, Slashfood has my back. They have rated eight brands of bubbly of varying tastes and low price points, so if you are as clueless as I am, you should find this helpful. They even have a bottle of champagne sparkling wine that tastes decent and costs, yes, $4.

These are good bubbli-wubbli. But can also be substituted by hand squeezing some grapes into a sock, putting it into the microwave for three hours and mixing with paint-thinner.

Christophe does indeed speak the truth, for me my favourite champagnes (within reason) are Bollinger for the fuller flavour (but not as rich as Pol Roger) Veuve Clicquot for a light in England expect to pay between £25 - £30 if you shop around. The Bollinger Grande Annee is even better but will cost around £50.

As for sparkling wine go for a good Cava, Campo Viejo is very reasonable at about £4-£7.

If you're feeling very flush go for Krug or Dom Perignon both are around £100 which for me is too much.
