M&S Leoville las Cases offer


#21

That looks increasingly like a trip to my local shop…


#22

It has to be worth a look as different stores do stock slightly different ranges so seeing one is not a total guide to what may be in your local M&S, they often have some of their online stock on the shelves.


#23

I find it amazing the difference in ranges in each store given it’s all the same company! That said, it makes the thrill of the hunt that much better


#24

Pontet Canet 2015 (was at £80 per bottle) is now out of stock as well…


#25

They had this in the Norwich store, it was the only wine I purchased, though it says sold out online, it is the 2015 vintage at £14, so maybe worth having a look in your localM&S

bottom of photo cut off ? but it is the La Gille.

Click the image and you’ll see the whole label.


#27

Merci beaucoup, sometimes with a long photo they fit sometimes like this they don’t, thanks.


#28

Looks like a good spot. M&S Aylesford (yes, I have set a new record for M&S stores visited in one week) didn’t have any of those but did have something a bit different and interesting to try for the princely sum of £7

Might give it a go this weekend


#29

I got this Shiraz in the main Brighton M&S today - don’t know why I went for it. Might be a recent chat with @winechief! :grinning:


Reduced from £13 to a mere £8.30… looking forward to checking it out!


#30

They certainly didn’t have that in Norwich though they have in the past, when they do their Wine Festival it involves some leg work getting round the different stores.


#31

Well, took the plunge and this arrived yesterday, as well as picking up a few bottles of the Volnay from a local store:


#32

Sold out by 1st Sept. @ £147.40 a bottle.

Somebody please tell me what it tastes like?


#33

My local Morrisons had a Chablis grand cru AND Chateau Giscours on the shelves in the ‘manager’s discount’ section a couple of years ago. Naturally, at their original price they hadn’t sold (Wakefield isn’t renowned for it’s high spending) so were at 60% off. This is something MSN seem to do from time to time - it was vintage champagne this year.

I have no idea what their strategy is … I suspect it might be simply that Sir Ken (who lives nearby) & the board liked quality wine and it made sense to buy it through the supermarket!


#34

Sir Ken Morrison may well have had a taste for good wine, but he died last year !


#35

Was tempted by the Leoville but couldn’t bring myself to fork out the :pound::pound::pound: (think my wife may have murdered me!)
Be interested to know what you think of the Volnay PC if you open one. I’ve purchased 1 along with 1 bottle of the HdB Meursault but plan to hold on to them for a while yet.


#36

Also planning to hold onto all three for a little while yet and work my way through some older burgundies first, but will be sure to report back when I do get to one!


#37

I’ve been checking M&S in Solihull for HdB to come down - still £65.

I’ve seen that Gigondas @Cerberus. as you’ve bought it, I assume a good buy!?


#38

I bought a bottle of the Gigondas yesterday as I was in M&S. Won’t try it for a while but I’ve always found Perrin very reliable.


#39

As Andy says Perrin though a large outfit do make very reliable wines.

Might also be worth checking in the 1/3 off section for these at £21.33 each. Just bought the last two in Yeovil:
