Prices continue to get lower as grocers fight for market share

Sainsbury’s continues to be super competitive with the likes of ASDA, Tesco and Morrisons. Having bought in a new set of offers on 10 December it has already improved on some of the deals. It has cut a further £4 off Laurent-Perrier Rosé, reduced Lanson Black Label to £20 (from £22) and bought GH Mumm down another £1 to £24 a bottle.

This looks to be partly in reaction ASDA has dropping its single bottle Lanson Black Label price to £22 last week. ASDA still has Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label and Taittinger Brut Réserve at £30 for a single bottle, though the latter is cheaper at Majestic (if you buy two bottles) and at Waitrose under its new offers (£26.95) for a single bottle.

Tesco new offers which started on 17 December include lower prices than Sainsbury’s for Veuve Clicquot Rosé and Jacquart Brut Mosaïque, plus what I think is the lowest price of the year for its Finest Brut Premier Cru which drops to just £10.39 a bottle if you buy three or more Tesco Finest wines.

Waitrose card holders get an additional 10% off all champagnes and wines on top of the current promotions. And there are some good new deals on two very attractive lines from Besserat de Bellefon – a blanc de blancs and a rosé both at £23.99 — and in a dozen of its largest stores and via WaitroseCellar.com you can buy magnums of Bollinger Special Cuvée for £67.49. Like Veuve Clicquot’s, the Bollinger magnum blend is longer aged and partly because magnums are the perfect format size for champagne the wine always seems significantly better served from magnum. For Christmas Day or Boxing Day morning this would be a first class treat, likely to make even the most noxious relation seem good company.

ASDA’s low prices on Piper Heidsieck, Heidsieck Monopole and Nicolas Feuillatte, the latter two at £15 a bottle, plus Louvel Fontaine Rosé now at £15 a bottle, continue, while Pierre Darcys has been at £10 for a single bottle since 13 November. Morrisons Veuve Devanlay Brut, which we were impressed by in our under £20 fizz tasting a couple of weeks ago, is now down to just £12 a bottle, if you can find stocks. Morrisons is expected to introduce more deals today (12 December).

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 Bros & Rudd have a particularly fine collection of what they call ‘Artisan champagnes’ many of which are made by individual growers — récoltant-manipulants — who only produce their champagnes from grapes grown in vineyards they own. Berry’s also works with two of the best co-operatives in Champagne, respectively based in and named after the Grand Crus of Mailly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. We tend to concentrate on these Artisan champagnes here, simply because they comprise some of the most exciting champagnes made in the whole region.
