From under £20 to £100...

  • Under £20

    Domaine Laurens Crémant de Limoux 2011, £13.95, Roberson Wine

    “Quality fizz that isn’t champagne is called crémant,” explains wine expert Jane Parkinson. “It’s often great value. This one has apple and lemon flavours.”

  • Under £30

    Nyetimber Classic Cuvee 2009, £29.95, Waitrose

    “One of the English sparkling pioneers plus one of the best English vintages in the last decade equals beautiful wine. This has a creamy flavour but is zingy too.”

  • Under £50

    Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve NV Champagne, £49.95, Harrods

    “Gorgeously elegant, with a honey richness and citrus freshness. It lingers in the mouth. Wines made by this house are seriously good.”

  • Under £75 Bellavista Gran Cuvee Brut Satèn, £54.10, Hedonism Wines

    “This is a franciacorta – Italy’s champagne. Satèn has softer bubbles, making it very delicate. This one has a malty, caramelised-nut flavour.”

  • Under £100 Bruno Paillard Blanc de Blancs Champagne 1999, £82.99, Selfridges

    “Blanc de Blancs is pure chardonnay and a very elegant champagne style. This is rich and toasty with a delicious funky Marmite bite."
