Not all the Sparkling Wines are Champagne. Even though I am a lover of Sparkling wines. I have to recognize that, Champagne is the king of bubbles. I do not often enjoy Champagne as I more frequently enjoy other Sparkling Wines but for New Years Eve, of course Champagne will be on my lineup.
Let’s revisit a bit this type of wine. Champagne is only made in Champagne, France, a town outside of Paris. All the other ones that are called Method Champegnoise, Sparkling Wines or Method Traditionale are not Champagne so heads up for your next Champagne purchase. Always review where is it produce -the region- as labels are often confussing.
I had the idea that Champagne was very expensive. I did some research within this category of wine, and realized an extensive tasting. I am going to recommend you good quality price Champagnes under $50.

“This ripe, soft wine is well balanced and offers attractive fruitiness. The creamy mousse and acidity bring richness and a fresh character. With its finely judged dosage, not too dry, not too sweet, the wine is very ready to drink.” -Wine Enthusiast
