A new year is here but that doesn’t mean it’s time to shun the Champagne. We’re looking out for some of the best Champagne deals, so you can get the best value for money – particularly if one of your resolutions is to drink less, but better.

The Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA) predicted that in the UK, more of us would be turning to Champagne to bring in the start of 2021.

It’s latest market report shows a growth in sales over the three months to October, after a difficult time for this category earlier in the year. Twelve week sales in shops and supermarkets of Champagne in the UK equated to 2.3 million bottles worth £63 million.

‘2020 has been an incredibly difficult year, so it’s great that we can end on a positive note that Champagne sales, after years of decline, are starting to pick up,’ said Miles Beale, chief executive of the WSTA.

‘Many will consider it a little luxury for a festive period when we are having to celebrate at home.’

Vintage vs Non-vintage Champagne

Non-vintage Champagne accounts for around 79% of the total Champagne production, according to The Comité Champagne. 
Every year producers hold back some reserve wine and blend these to make the non-vintage, creating a consistent and reliable reflection of the house style, though these wines won’t be quite as complex or ageworthy as the vintage ones.
Vintage Champagne is produced in the best years – so not every year – showing more of a unique reflection of the year it was made. The higher quality means it can continue to age in the bottle and further develop. The 2020 vintage is a rare third consecutive year for Champagne vintages – though the ones to look for drinking now are around 2008 – 2012.
Non-vintage Champagne must be aged for a minimum of 15 months (12 on the lees) while vintage must be aged for a minimum of 36 months.
