Latest champagne offers

Calm before the storm?       

There is a slight lull of the offers front, until the end of year promotions break, though that, if the past couple of years are anything to go by, is likely to be soon. Tesco’s  25% off all wine and champagne prices only available in its stores — but from what readers have been saying, not all stores — has now ended. It still has two great offers online for discerning drinkers: Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs from grower Michel Gonet at £18.09 a bottle and the delicious Jacquart’s Blanc de Blancs 2005 at the equivalent to £24 per bottle (both by the case deals).


Sainsbury’s has been noticeably more aggressive in its promotions over the summer months,  so it will be interesting to see if that strategy continues in October in the run up to the year end. For its part ASDA has moved away from £10 champagne for the moment but has slashed the price GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut in its shops to just £20 a bottle, an offer it has had online by the case for some time.


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
