Low-Calorie Wine & Champagne
Wine can be full of a calorie, so if you’re on a low-calorie diet, it’s essential to know the best wines – especially if you’re making cocktails with fruit juices.
On average, you’ll find that wine has about 120 calories per glass, meaning 600 calories per bottle. Champagne contains fewer calories than red and white wine. Standard glass contains nearly 80 calories, compared to wine, over 120 marks.

Low Calorie Champagne
In addition to the many reasons, I can give to drink champagne, it is also a low-calorie alcoholic drink option. Champagne is classified according to the scale of sweetness, ranging from “Extra Brut” to “Demi-Sec.” It indicates the grams of sugar remaining per liter (g/L). The most common style of champagne is “Brut,” which typically contains 6-12g/L and approximately 90 calories for a standard 125ml glass. Something like the Gardet Brut Tradition NV fits the bill here, which has just 8g/l, or even the Gardet Brut Tradition with just 6g/l. But if you are an expert, choose “Extra Brut,” which has less than 6g/l. For example, Laurent-Perrier’s Ultra Brut has a zero dose (meaning no sugar added) – just 65 calories per cup. Steer clear of “Demi-Sec” if you want a lower-calorie option; these have 32-50g/L which is about 120 calories per cup.
