Fizz to end Dry January in style!

Bravo if you’ve completed dry January – let’s welcome you back with the brisk beauty of the best bubbles. For a good-value option laden with rich complexity, race to Morrisons for The Best English Sparkling Vintage 2010 (11.5%), £25 – it’s divine. But think of all the cash you’ve saved by being abstemious this month; you deserve a treat that you wouldn’t usually splash out on. You want to pull something handsome as well as entertaining out of the fridge, something that makes you feel like a winner. After all, you’ve earned yourself a wine trophy.

Legras Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru NV (12%), £35.95, leaandsandeman.co.uk. For a dazzling zinger, this is peerless at this price. Light the touchpaper!

Taittinger Prelude NV(12%), £55, jeroboams.co.uk. Blended from the best Grand Cru vineyards. Expect a rich, fresh glass of invigoration.

Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old (12%), £61.90, hedonism.co.uk. This is what I buy for a treat: superbly expressive and attractive fizz to celebrate with.

Pol Roger Vintage 2012 Rosé (12.5%), £85, bbr.com. Moreish and magical pink bubbly. Hurl it into your basket for an epic wine romp.
