Nothing screams 'New Year's Eve' like a bottle of bubbles.
But unfortunately, the price on your favorite Champagne is about to, well, pop.
Retailers most likely will raise the prices on all sparkling wines as we get closer to the big day.
So get online or get yourself to the store soon.
And in the interest of time, we've put together a cheat sheet for you.
We've talked before about which Champagnes to buy for investment purposes, but what bottles should you buy to drink right now?
We asked three Champagne pros for their best picks at three different spend levels.
Sadly, it's tough to find a good bottle of Champagne for $20, says David White, author of But First, Champagne, a modern guide to all things Champagne. "The starting price for real Champagne is closer to about $35," he said.
Granted, that's not cheap.
But Champagne producers are subject to the strictest rules in the wine world, they have limited grape resources and have to follow one of the most complicated production processes, says Belinda Chang, James Beard award-winning sommelier in Chicago.
So if it's made properly, it deserves the premium (so be careful with those lower-priced Champagnes).
But I'm broke!
So what do you buy if you're on a tight budget?
Remember, Champagne has to come from Champagne, France. But there so many wine-producing regions around the world that make delicious sparkling wines in using the same production methods. They just can't call their product Champagne. "I love Cava, Franciacorta and many of the sparkling wines from California and Oregon," says Chang. "Raventos Cava always hits the spot for me. [It's] $15!"
But if you want to stay true to Champagne, you will not be disappointed with Kirkland Signature Champagne from Costco. It sounds crazy but you really should give it a shot, says Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, a Master of Wine.
I Can Spend...Just Not My Whole Paycheck.
If you can afford to go to $50, the Champagne world opens up to you.
"My favorite is Piper-Heidsieck...always will be," says Simonetti-Bryan, who is one of the most value-oriented wine pros out there.
White suggests, either the Pierre Gimonnet's Cuis Premier Cru Brut or the Marie Courtin's Resonance. "Both growers are total rockstars -- and both produce some of Champagne's most consistently delicious wine," White says.
Or try the J. Lasalle Preference NV. "This delicious non-vintage Champagne is my jam right now, from a third generation girl-power family, this juicy, luscious cuvée checks every box for a glass or bottle of Champagne," says Chang.
I'm Ready To Splurge!
If your budget is unlimited, so is the availability of amazing Champagnes.
"Nothing beats Krug Grande Cuvée," says Whtie. "Whether you're enjoying it with a Michelin-starred meal or takeout, it's presence on a table makes a statement."
Simeonett-Bryan is loving Champagne Barons de Rothschild right now.
And when Chang is feeling like the sky's the limit, "I'm going to buy bottles of Salon Le Mesnil a.k.a. 'Vitamin S' or 'Sally' for my crew." Because it's made from "what must be the happiest Chardonnay grapes in the world."
Now these are just suggestions. Because of the rigorous rules surrounding Champagne, you really can't go wrong with any of them. But get out there soon - especially if you're on a budget.
Because no matter how great the wine is, over-paying for it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
