Put down the Veuve—there's a tastier alternative. And it's only $10 a bottle. (We're not kidding.) First rosé, now this? We're calling summer 2017 a win for budget wines.
Lidl’s Sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne NV just grabbed a coveted Silver Outstanding award at the International Wine & Spirit Competition, putting it among the ranks of much pricier Champagnes.
While the tasty Crémant doesn't qualify as a Champagne—only wines produced in the méthode traditionelle hailing from the Champagne region of France can be dubbed as such—we think it’s a worthy fizzy substitute. The flavor profile is described as dry with plenty of flavor and a lingering finish.
An excuse to break out the bubbly on a weeknight? We think so.
