Latest champagne offers

Tesco brings in some major price cuts       

Now the holiday period is over Tesco is raising its game introducing a blanket 25% off all wine and champagne prices (bought in store in any combination of six bottles, the 25% discount doesn’t apply to champagne bought online) while other scheduled discounts are already running for a 12 day period starting today Thursday 4 September. Under this deal the price of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label comes down to £20.81 if you buy six bottles or more and Tesco Finest Rosé to £14.99. Under its soon to end warehouse clearance sale Tesco also still has some stock left of the Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs from grower Michel Gonet at £18.09 a bottle (if you buy a case).

Given that Sainsbury’s has been noticeably more aggressive in its promotions over the summer months it will be interesting to see if it re-acts to this strategy, especially as it comes at a point when the grocer only has four offers currently running. As several readers have emailed ChampagneGuru to point out, Sainsbury’s has also stopped offering the extra 5% discount on purchases of six bottles or more which is no longer available regularly at any of the large grocers now.

For its part ASDA has moved away from £10 champagne for the moment but continues to sell GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut at just £20 a bottle through its online shop.


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. And Tesco ‘wine-by-the-case’ is selling Jacquart’s superb Blanc de Blancs 2005 at £144 a six bottle case, equivalent to £24 per bottle.


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
