15 of the best wines to drink with Christmas dinner

Sainsbury’s Crémant de Loire

Bearing in mind the creep upwards of Champagne prices in this decade, it’s becoming more common for consumers to seek out a cheaper alternative to this famous fizz when pouring a sparkling wine for big, celebratory events.

So it was exciting to find in this year’s Global Sparkling Masters that there are delicious options of creamy, gently toasty fizz on the market today at roughly half the price of grandes marques Champagnes. The most keenly-priced Gold-medal winning fizz of the competition was this Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference Crémant de Loire Brut, which is in fact made by Bouvet Ladubay for the supermarket.

The sparkling wine garnered a high score for its combination of richness and refreshment, combining cleansing flavours of apple and chalk, with more creamy characters, and a touch of honey-coated toast, which provided added interest.
