I am a Roederer fan as well.. that would be my pick.. I think you can get the brut for right around 20..

I bought this at a wineshop, on the recommendation of the owner. She said it was a very nice sparkler: Graham Beck Brut- chardonnay-pinot noir, South Africa - $15.99

Haven't tasted it yet... maybe for Valentine's Day. And I will report back.

CAVA is a pretty awesome cheaper sparkling option.
Cava by law needs to be produced using method traditional (exactly the same process as champagne), but thanks to technology and not being french its far more accessible and affordable.

Caves El Barcino Cava is a fav... about $17 a bottle

another options could be of course a "crement de (insert region here)" made in France but outside of Champagne... i have had some good luck with them... and for some reason they tend to be very readily available right around valentines day

cheers

Here is a "Champagne" from New Mexico that is tasty and less than 20 dollars.

I agree about the Roederer Alexander Valley brut, great option for around $20. Lucien Albrecht makes a nice cremant d'Alsace rosé and other types. Trader Joes carries some that are like Blason de Bourgogne or something like that, blancs de noirs, blancs de blanc, etc. All under $20. Barefoot Bubbly has a couple different types and some are tasty for under $10. These are especially good for "champagne" cocktails, mimosas, etc.
