Shoppers rush to buy cheap champagne from bargain store that tastes like Laurent Perrier – but costs 1/3 of the price | The Sun

SHOPPERS are raving over a bargain champagne dupe that costs over £36 less than the branded version.

Who doesn't love a bottle of fizz over the Christmas season? But with most costing anything from £40, it can set you back a bit.

Luckily for champagne fans, a TikTokker has found a cheaper alternative for Laurent-Perrier fizz.

Speaking to her 35.4k followers on the app, Lucy Hitchcock, founder of Partner In Wine UK, shared the Aldi dupe that costs just £8.99.

She said: "I think I've found an Aldi dupe for Laurent Perrier.

"This is just as delicious."

The bargain bottle is the Specially Selected Cremant Du Jura (12% ABV) and is available both online and in store.

It costs a huge £36 less than the £44.99 bottle of Laurent-Perrier 'La Cuvée' Brut Champagne (12% ABV) we found at Majestic Wines.

Lucy goes on to say: "This Cremant Du Jura is made in the exact same way as champagne – the traditional method.

"Giving it the those delicious notes of brioche and toast.

"It's also made from 100% chardonnay grapes so expect elegance and freshness and plenty of citrus and fruit flavours."

She said this is why it is the "ideal dupe" for chardonnay dominant champagnes like Laurent Perrier.

She added: "I actually can't believe this costs 1/3 of the price of champagne."

Lucy encouraged her followers to "run don't walk" to go and grab themselves a bottle.

It looks like that's exactly what Aldi shoppers have done.

Commenting on the video with one called it an "absolute winner of wine".

Meanwhile on Facebook people have been raving about the Aldi find.

A woman posted: "Who needs champagne when you can have Aldi's Cremant du Jura – just as good, at a shadow of the price…"

A lot of the comments on posts about the Aldi favourite were quick to point out that it does sell out fast.

So, while it may be available now it might not last long on shelves.

Before heading to your local store, which you can find on the website, it might be worth calling ahead to check it's in stock.

Also, when ordering online to make sure to factor in delivery costs.

Of course there are other supermarkets who offer similar champagne alternatives.

Tesco's Cava Brut Non Vintage (11.5% ABV) for £5.85 – although this one doesn't appear to be the same chardonnay based wine as the Aldi one.

It's worth noting that Aldi's sparkling wine and Tesco's cava are not technically champagnes like the Laurent Perrier.

Champagne and sparkling wines such as cava and prosecco are all made in the same way.

But, only certain sparkling wines can be called Champagne.

To be called Champagne, the sparkling wine has to come from the Champagne region in France and can only be made using certain grapes.

We also rounded up some of the cheapest supermarket champagnes alternatives earlier this year.

As always, remember to check elsewhere in case we missed a cheaper price – there's never a bad time to catch a bargain.

Prices may vary day to day as well depending on what deals are on, and remember to look at delivery costs too if you're ordering online.
