Latest champagne offers

Sainsbury’s raises the ante with more deals          

Sainsbury’s has introduced a raft of 13 new offers on champagne today (19 November), some of which mirror, rather closely, deals already running at rivals Tesco and ASDA. Its new offer on Taittinger Brut Réserve for example runs until 25 November, exactly as Tesco’s does, and is better for a single bottle — £25 vs £29.99. Its price on GH Mumm Cordon Rouge is similarly slightly better than Tesco’s £26.49 a bottle. It also trumps the deals running on Nicolas Feuillatte Brut at Tesco and ASDA — where the single bottle price for that wine is £15.99 and £15 respectively — by offering Nicolas Feuillatte Grande Réserve for £20, a higher price but it is a much superior blend.

Sainsbury’s hasn’t as yet sought to challenge the lowest price deals of £10 a bottle (at ASDA) nor the slightly lower price at Tesco £9.74 for Louis Delaunay Brut (if you buy four bottles or more), but perhaps that will come as competition between the grocers drives prices ever lower?

Tesco still has some of the best reductions available, running until 25 November. Just £11.99 for its Finest Premier Cru from the top Union Champagne co-op is the most attractive deal. If you want brands, I’d go for the much improved Piper Heidsieck at £16.87 or Mumm at £19.78, though the former is cheaper still at ASDA. ASDA’s low prices on Piper Heidsieck, Heidsieck Monopole and Nicolas Feuillatte, the latter two at £15 a bottle, plus Louvel Fontaine at £12 a bottle continue, while Pierre Darcys dropped to £10 for a single bottle on 13 November.

While I try to list most of the current offers at the leading UK supermarkets, Majestic and other retailers below, I have also highlighted the best value for money deals on wines really worth drinking.

Berry’s have a couple of my ’2013 wines of the year’ in the shape of their Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru from the Le Mesnil co-operative and the 2004 vintage from the same source, also made by my namesake Gilles Marguet. Highlighting their very fine collection of growers’ champagne I put together a tasting of rosé styles, and tried them alongside some other favourites. You can now see this report: ‘Growers’ pinks offer great value‘ on the home page. These below are the wines from Berry Bros & Rudd www.bbr.com in the tasting I would particularly recommend:
R&L Legras Brut Rosé, 94/100, £39.95
Benoît Marguet Berry’s United Kingdom Cuvée Rosé Grand Cru Brut NV, 92/100, £29.95
Pierre Peters Rosé d’Albane, 90/100, £36
