Sunshine and deals boost fizz consumption

Good summer weather continues to lift champagne consumption and retailers like Tesco are doing their best to boost consumers’ spending by introducing the widely favoured blanket 25% discount of all its wine and champagnes if you buy six bottles or more. And because it is doing this while other discounts are running some real bargains have emerged. You can pick up bottles of Veuve Clicquot’s top quality 2004 vintage for below £28 under the deal, while Lanson Black Label drops to just £16.49.

We seem to be seeing a switch in the recent deals back to big brand names, as was the case at Sainsbury’s last month. However one of the bargains while the 25% discount lasts (until 10 September) is Own Label in the shape of Tesco Finest Premier Cru a wine I’d be very happy to consume at just £12.74 a bottle.  For details of these and other price reductions see the Latest Offers page.
