Price £12.99 (Brought on half price offer £6.49) Available at Tesco
I love bubbles, well who doesn't? but I definitely do not love spending a half a days wage on one bottle. Prosecco makes me feel like I'm having a true treat without breaking the bank and shock horror, I actually prefer the taste to Champagne, which tends to be more biscuit-y and dry. This straw coloured fizz has lively small bubbles (smaller bubbles means better quality) and smells like your have pressed your nose into a bowl of freshly picked green apples. A smooth mousse (posh wine word for the effervescence or bubbliness of the bubbles) with apple and hints of citrus on palate. Labelled as Brut although it is nudging towards Demi Sec, with a slightly mineral after taste.
Rating - If you find this on offer, which it often is, then it is definitely worth scraping your pennies together for.
