We’ve always tried to draw attention on this page to the best deals on champagnes really worth drinking. We’re not changing that philosophy, but won’t be giving exhaustive lists of all the current deals in the supermarkets in future. We’re going to be more selective and endeavour to highlight more champagnes that offer good value for money at different price points, even when they are not discounted.
Cheap champagne is rarely an exciting drink and we’ll only mention it when we find something particularly good. Everything that is recommended has been tasted recently.
For those readers who want to check out a wider range of current deals on champagne online at the supermarkets and wine merchants, you can click directly through to the WinesDirect website. As well as offering you the opportunity to save money when you buy champagne online, you also have access here to historical price data – so you can check the lowest level any given brand tends to fall to – price alerts and comparison tools.
