Latest champagne offers

Discounts widen as summer of sport nears climax       

Waitrose is offering 25% reduction on 22 different champagnes online in a deal that runs until 15 July. As well as its very decent range of Own Label champagne I’d particularly highlight Alexandre Bonnet Rosé (down from £26.99 to £20.24) this house also makes the Waitrose Blanc de Noirs (down from £21.99 to £16.49) plus  Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs, one of my favourite all Chardonnay champagnes (down from £33.99 to £25.49). There is also a third off Laurent-Perrier’s agreeable light, fresh non-vintage Brut style (down from £37.99 to £24.59).

Sainsbury’s has introduced some attractive reductions on GH Mumm in the special Grand Prix F1 livery see Champagne’s sporting summer Part Two (£23.50), also on Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label (£28) and Heidsieck Monopole (£18.75) while deals on Lanson, which celebrates 25 years at Wimbledon this year, are widespread as the tennis fortnight draws to an end.  Elsewhere £10 fizz has returned at ASDA (switching from Pierre Darcy to Louvel Fontaine), which has Lanson Black Label at £23 and through its online shop continues to sell GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut at just £20 a bottle.


Growers’ pink fizz tasting
You can now also see the results of my blind tasting of growers’ and other small producers’ pink fizz, many of which came from Berry Bros & Rudd on the home page (Growers’ pinks offer great value). This took place earlier in the year and Anthony Rose of The Independent came over to taste them with me. It proved to be an excellent line-up of characterful wines. The stars of the tasting were R&L Legras, Fleury, Drappier, Benoît Marguet and Billecart-Salmon, the latter put in the mix as a benchmark rosé style. If you want to source brilliant pink fizz for Easter look at this list and my ‘Top ten pink champagnes outside the grocers (mostly).


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
