Just mentioning the word “Champagne” on New Year’s Eve and you will elicit an enthusiastic, and celebratory response from all in earshot. For centuries champagne has been synonymous with a good time. Thus, there is no more appropriate drink on New Year’s Eve than a glass of the bubbly.

Here we have rounded together some of the best champagnes for every budget and sparkling wines for every taste and budget. And if you are looking to pick up a couple bottles, we recommend you check out Bottles, the best locally owned and operated beverage superstore in Charleston.

Segura Viudas Brut Cava NV: $9

Tasting Notes: Dry and Citrusy

Technically, Segura Viudas is classified as a cava, rather than a champagne. However, with a price under $10, it is a great choice for those on a budget. Champagne is more acidic, so many people prefer cavas and proseccos. This is due to their fruitier taste from being grown in warmer climates like Italy and Spain.

Louis Roederer Cristal: $170

Tasting Notes: Complex and balanced. Green pear, raspberry, lemon, biscuit, honey. Light spice. Creamy finish

When most people think of Cristal an image of Puff Daddy or a flashy club may appear. Cristal truly is an incredible wine while the price point is high and the brand has now become associated with opulence. Developing champagne is extremely labor intensive with high production costs and with Cristal, the price is warranted. So, if you’ve ever considered splurging on Cristal, New Year’s in Charleston is an excellent excuse.
