Do you have a Co-op Near you?


#21

I prefer Merlot and Cab Franc Bordeauxs than Cab Sauv. I cracked open a bottle and it’s very Cab Sauv but after some air it was a lovely drop for the price - not sure I’d pay 17 for it - I’ll keep the rest of 2016s for another 4/5 years.


#22

So, tried the very small Co-op at Trent Bridge and the quite large one at West Bridgford this morning - both selling at full price. We could be on a Unicorn hunt or perhaps a very canny marketing plan by the Co-op? Good luck everyone!


#23

The coop in Farnham, Surrey also drew a blank.

:unicorn: :eyes:


#24

Tetbury Coop was sold out of Senejac, so assume someone had been in to clear it before I got there!


#25

Nothing In Sunderland - Hylton Castle.

:frowning_face:


#26

When I got mine it was still marked at full price on the isle - but at the checkout 8.50.


#27

Lucky. I took two different vintages of Senejac to the tills and after a couple of disapproving noises from the checkout staff, they confirmed they were still full price before making a big point calling someone to come and put the bottles back.

Maybe Friday evening at peak wasn’t the best time but they only had to quickly scan two items not a big deal really.


#28

I’ve searched a few branches but can’t find any on offer , do you mind saying which branch ? Thanks


#29

Coops in Bristol - one Bishopston and one Kingstown - but I’ve snaffled the lot!


#30

Well that’s bizarre @profavi - sounds like it’s not a promotion, more of an M&S style pricing cock-up. Will try again…


#31

(I’m pretty sure that the Farnham Co-op will be in the Portsmouth Co-op area. If so, past experience suggests all such searches will turn out to be wild goose chases.)


#32

senejac was on full price (didn’t try to see if reduced at the checkout)

but did get some other nice bits and bobs - Perin CdP Les SInards @ £14 Ch Roumier (Sauternes) @ £5 (half btl) Montes Alpha (Syrah) @ £5 and some other general quaffers

My bargain of the week was John Lewis - clearing xmas wines and spirits and picked up some Nytimber @ £10 / half :slight_smile:


#33

Full price Senejac in Hove too. Couldn’t resist picking up a bottle of their Tenuta Trerose Vino Nobile di Montepulciano for £12. I’m not expecting anything earth-shattering but could be a bit of a steal. We’ll see!


#34

was my view when I picked us this for £8


#35

Picked up Pol Roger Brut Reserve this evening for £21! Bargain :sunglasses:


#36

I managed to find 5 bottles of Beaumont at £8. Two were 2014 which will be interesting re storage!


#37

Yes the Coop is well worth keeping an eye on and offers do vary from store to store.
I bought 2 bottles of Ch Fontestau 2012 at £7 which is ridiculous.
If you see Ch Jouanin 2014 ( Bdx Castillon) at less than a fiver, you wont be disappointed.
Have also taken a punt on 3 bottles of Cru Bourgeois Dasvin- Bel - Air Haut Medoc at just over £6. Could be a pleasant surprise in 5 years time


#38

The larger Co-ops have always had an interesting selection of wines. They’re not swamped by brands, 20 different types of Prosecco and 10 Chiantis. wink:

There’s a good 50cls manzanilla Mil Pesetas that has squatted in our fridge door for some time. Capitoul (I think that’s the name) a red from S. France is also worth a try. I bought 2 St Romains for £18 less 15% (4 + offer) recently.


#39

Just got the last bottle of their own brand vintage 2012 champagne for £14.52p exactly.
This was the Manchester Oxford rd shop. They had about 8 bottles of the Senejac but still full price.


#40

Slim pickings near me but I did manage to snag two 20cl Lanson NV for £4.63 each. Also paid for with my members rewards so freeish.
