Latest champagne offers

The big price cuts have started        

After the early October lull, the big price cuts have kicked off with Tesco introducing a half price deal on Nicolas Feuillatte running until 4 November which sees the price drop to £15.99 a bottle. If this is partly in reaction to Sainsbury’s on-going £20 deal on Lanson it is perhaps a sign of things to come. Sainsbury’s has been noticeably more aggressive in its promotions over the summer months than Tesco, but now it seems the gloves are off.

ASDA is biding its time except online where it has good offers on Piper Heidsieck, Heidsieck Monopole and Nicolas Feuillatte, the latter two at £15 a bottle, plus Louvel Fontaine at £12 a bottle.

Vintage Champagne:
If vintage champagne is your thing, and it is mine, Majestic currently has very good offers on both Moët’s and Veuve Clicquot excellent 2004s at £30 and £33.33 respectively. The Heidsieck Monopole 2007 (also at Majestic) is a soft, creamy, crowd pleasing fizz at a very affordable £19.99.


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
