Sam Caporn, Aldi’s Mistress of Wine comments: “There is something for everyone in Aldi’s Christmas fizz collection this year. Highlights include the supermarket’s first ever Methuselah of prosecco, which makes for the perfect Christmas centrepiece. For those looking for something really special, the Veuve Monsigny Champagne is, in my honest opinion, one of the very best, if not THE best value Champagne in the UK today."
