M&S Crazy wine bargains


#101

In many years searching for these elusive bargains I have never once found anything at all in any local outlets. Not worth the wasted time!


#102

My haul equates to:

6 x Warre’s Cavadinha 2001 £10 each
1 x Justino’s 10YO Malvasia £5
1 x Lustau Anada 2002 £5

Missed out on the Tokaji and Barbaresco

Oh well, pretty happy with my lot.

Edit: Add
3 x Royal Palace 2002 £6
3 x Vintage Port 2007 £6


#103

Now down to £4 a bottle …. crazy


#104

in MK ?


#105

Yep CMK. They have the Justino’s 10YO Malvasia as well, although it was marked as £18 I think rather than £5/4 that others have found - haven’t tried checking out to see if the marked price is wrong.


#106

It was marked at £18 in Bristol but we paid £5 so worth a try!


#107

thanks !


#108

I don’t know whether to feel grumpy or relieved that there’s bugger all of this going on in Yeovil’s M&S :man_shrugging:

It’s probably for the best … especially if that Brunello thing really does happen later this autumn :open_mouth:


#109

The not marking reductions thing is very odd - surely the point in reductions is to get someone e to buy something they otherwise wouldn’t?

I’d feel pretty cheeky taking something with no reduction label to tell checkout just in case


#110

Might go and check a local M&S to see if there is anything, they are probably clearing space for the mince pies or something.


#111

You ain’t kidding! My local Sainsbury’s is fully stocked with mince pies and other xmas-related foods. I just don’t get it! Are they trying to make us sick of the whole thing before it even remotely started…? :thinking:


#112

Got lucky today, there was nothing on the shelves but I spied a box of the Lustau on a trolley, managed to bag a few and sent a lovely staff member in search of the Cavadinha … she came back with a box :wink::wink:


Silverlink, Newcastle.


#113

Slim pickings for me but managed to bag the last bottle of the Royal Palace 2002 Colheita for £7.50 and Lustau Oloroso for £4 (my previous reduced bottles were £6). They had the Palo Cortado but that scanned through at the £9 shelf price so left it.


#114

Looks like that’s your Xmas prezzy list sorted! I also bought a few Lusteau 1998 & 2002 … on opening, the 1998 is ok - in a ‘cream sherry’ kinda way. Amazingly long finish, VERY rich & sweet, typical burnt orange notes etc.


#115

Popped in to the small Brighton shop today - got the 2001 Warr’s Vintage Port for £10, and the delicious 2014 Paul Cluver Late Harvest Riesling for £2.70!! Nuts! :crazy_face:

Edit: I should add that - like others’ reports- the Cluver was showing as its original price of £17… Glad I bothered to ask! It was also new stock, as there was none of it last time.


#116

Exactly my thoughts :wink:


#117

Worthwhile detour to Fosse Park tonight. I picked up six of the 2002 Colheita port for £6 each and two of the Madeira for £5 each. The shelf label still had the Madeira at £27 - well worth asking for a price check.


#118

marked price was wrong - came up as £5
shelf now empty…


#119

most importantly…did you get your little kitchen gifts ?


#120

Aaah is that what they are ?? Haven’t given them to the kids yet :rofl::joy:
