Attention Aldi fans, lovers of Champagne (and sparkling wine cocktails) and all devotees of having a good time on a budget: Aldi is now selling three-packs of brut bubbly mini bottles for $7.99.
As of December 13, U.S. Aldi stores will be selling a limited number of the Cuvée No. 5 Brut Sparkling bundles. They come just in time for the holidays, whether you’re looking for a last minute stocking stuffer or personal bottles to hoard until New Year’s Eve.
Aldi describes No. 5 as having “a bouquet of dry crunchy fruit, notes of apple, cinnamon and peach with a tangy finish” that’s “perfect as an aperitif or with soft cheeses.” Each bottle is 187 milliliters, or a little more than a glass of wine. It’s just the right size to keep nearby for when you’re craving an easy Champagne Cocktail or want to spritz up whatever drink you have in your hand. It’s also proof that Aldi knows how to do one thing: Give the people what they want.
While you’re there, you might as well pick up some Salted Caramel Vodka, a couple bottles of affordable gin and scotch, cheese and, for the pet owners, dog beer and cat wine. Those Cuvée No. 5’s are the only excuse you need for running to the nearest Aldi right now and making all of your holiday party purchases in one go.
