Valentine's Day champagne promotions

It doesn't seem more than a couple of weeks since Christmas and here we are already with more cut-price champagne offers. Today Sainsbury's is advertising a half price discount on Champagne Lanson bringing it down to £14.74 from £29.49.

Of course, as I never tire of saying, champagne is ludicrously overpriced at that kind of level which is obviously designed for discounting but this is a good price for a much improved champagne.

Sainsbury's also has the heavily-discounted but decent Charles Heidsieck Blue Top on sale at £14.29 (previously £28.59)

Expect more of the same over the coming week to 10 days.


  1. Hi Fiona,

    Love your blogs.

    What do you recommend as a well priced decent quality champagne that isn't on offer?

  2. Thankyou! I think these days you're generally better to buy champagne when it's on offer though the supermarkets own brands are always worth trying. Waitrose Blanc de Blancs for example which I think is about 21.99 in store (£21.84 online) though that's over £7 more than the discounted Lanson above
