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 50% reduction on Nicolas Feuillatte running until 4 November which sees the price drop to £15.99 a bottle plus a new half price deal on Lanson (down to £16.99 a bottle) which starts in store today (29 October) but is already advertised on-line. 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.

Morrisons too has joined the fray with 25% off all wine and champagne purchases of six bottles or more, advertised on national TV. Waitrose also looks set to introduce a blanket 25% reduction on wine and champagne when its current deals end tomorrow (28 October) until 4 November. It has! Will Sainsbury’s be prepared to stand in the wings and watch? Probably not. It wasn’t and the 25% off deal at Sainsbury’s starting today, unlike that at Waitrose, runs concurrently with other deals.

ASDA has added its already running online deals to its in store offer with big reductions on Piper Heidsieck, Heidsieck Monopole and Nicolas Feuillatte, the latter two at £15 a bottle, plus Louvel Fontaine at £12 a bottle. Champagne back at £10 a bottle can’t be very far off!

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
