M&S Crazy wine bargains


#21

Appeared at Liverpool M&S today
cascina morassino barbaresco 2016 down from £32 to £21 something. Never come across this before.
They also had mags of La Taupe, but by the time I went back the solitary bottle had gone. It was £16.


#22

Good to hear, not had a duff bottle from Potel.


#23

Spotted today - Camel Valley English Sparkler marked down to £9. All gone (I did ask). Also checked the deep-freezes for any Wild Geese…


#24

Did you check the wine fridge? I was told there wasn’t any Castle Brook in Liverpool yesterday but saw some in fridge. Didn’t end up buying it because I had already bought the above instead and have already overspent as usual.


#25

Kept my receipt. Its a pretty cool temperature in M&S food so hopefully its ok


#26

Just popped into the Epping branch to do a bit of shopping and scan the wine shelves. Spotted, and bought, the last bottle of Tokaji Aszu 5 puttonyos 2001 at £8 reduced from £25! Average price given on Vivino is £49.95!


#27

if I remember correctly - he doesn’t make the wine…but acts as an advisor / overseer


#28

I bought one in MK the other day…my worry is that its 2001…where has it been ?!


#29

I didn’t but I’m not sure they have a wine fridge(!) They did check stock records which indicated zero bottles anywhere in store though.


#30

If its any consolation my local always stocked it but it never made to the reductions. I worked for M&S for a year or two in between jobs so to speak, and back then the stock records were shockingly inaccurate. I know it doesn’t help you.


#31

I picked up a couple of bottles of Lustau Vintage sherry yesterday - reduced to half price. Sadly an empty shelf where the 20 year old tawny port reduced to £10 had been… Nothing else of note in the store in question.


#32

I have yet to find anything in my local store, Nottingham. Maybe I’m just not a regular enough visitor :worried:


#33

Same here. There’s a similar thread on wine pages, think others beat us to it.


#34

The Lustau was in West Bridgford… I just happened to be in Nottingham…


#35

Based on recent experience the best East Midlands store for fine wine offers is M&S at Fosse Park. I picked up a lot of bargains including Burgundy and the Filhot Sauternes in the last offer.


#36

Thanks for the tip, the next time someone posts up about M&S wine offers I may have to high tail it down the Fosse :-):grin:


#37

I live near the Fosse too! Forgot just how far it goes…

These Romans are crazy.

#38

Half the population probably lives within a stone’s throw :wink:


#39

Another crazy wine bargain today. Again dessert wines. Again M&S.

These half bottles of Paul Cluver Riesling Noble Late Harvest are now reduced to clear at £5 down from £17! It was too tempting to resist. So three bottles of 2013 and three of 2014 came home.

That’s an absolute steal - Well done! Can’t understand M&S - some of these wines are an absolute giveaway…
