It's safe to say we love Champagne, and we'd probably drink nothing else if we could afford it!

Drinking the delicious, fruity, biscuitty fizz can be a pricey habit, which is why we're so excited that a £15 bottle has just beaten out luxury retailers to be crowned Best Champagne in a recent taste test.

Coming out on top against the likes of Champagne Jacques Chaput and The Wine Society, Asda's £15 champagne has been crowned Best Champagne at The People's Choice Wine Awards.

Much more affordable than other fizz on the market, Asda's Extra Special Louis Bernard Vintage Champagne 2007 was praised for its 'ripe yellow apple fruit and round nutty characters, matched with brisk balancing citrus acidity.'

Echoing the judge's sentiments on the Asda website, the fizz is described as 'the perfect partner to smoked salmon and light chicken dishes', being a 'refreshing and elegant Champagne balancing creamy vanilla flavours with a smooth fruitiness.'

Showing just how impressive the British high street is, Asda wasn't the only supermarket to be praised for its bubbly, with Waitrose taking home the title of Best Sparkling Wine.

Its Leckford Estate Brut 2013 by the Hampshire vineyard costs £26.9 a bottle, and is described as having peach and citrus flavours with a hint of hazelnut.

Waitrose's English bubbly even ranked higher than fizz from the award-winning Lyme Bay Winery.

It's safe to say we'll be making a pit stop at our local Asda on the way home!

Along with naming Best Champagne, The People's Choice Wine Awards also revealed the absolute best supermarket to buy wines at.

Beating other big names such as Waitrose, Morrisons and Booths, one budget retailer took home the title which considered value for money and quality of products, having launched more new wines than ever, increased the quality of its offering and stocked a range of products from magnums of Champagne, to low-calorie prosecco and an impressive selection of vegan wines.
