Supermarket promotions Q2 2022

I picked up 6 of these today, which came to the princely total of £44.96 after discount. I note on the label it claims to have been aged for 5 years after bottling, so I am hopeful of a decent wine.

We will try one in the next couple of days, after which 1 of 2 things will happen:

1) I spend the following 2 days tracking down and squirreling away more, or

2) it goes into the box of crap for Vicki's band of harpies to knock back in the garden

We shall see...
What was the verdict Richard ? I didn't get any this time round but have a bottle that I bought in the previous 25% off window
 
Do you think this is a problem across the range, e.g. for LGA 2014? If so quite concerning for those who bought such wines...

There’s no reason to presume they use different quality conglomerate corks for different wines, so this is an issue for the entire range.

But it isn’t new, and although Bollinger have embraced new technology for disgorgement they still miss this basic step.
 
Tesco 25% off 6+ from today until 4 July (not Scotland and some wines excluded in Wales). Clubcard required
In two recent articles Jancis was quite complementary about some of the Tesco range - one of the articles does not require subscription.
Thanks for the tip re the Jancis articles. I went armed with a few names and although my local store has a very limited wine range I managed to pick up three different wines and all on a double discount too. Win win.
 
Lidl Cerasuolo Di Vittoria was reduced to 3.99 in my local store this afternoon. YMMV. Haven't tried it yet but will tonight.

Also their very good GV Johann Quest will be reduced to 4.29 this weekend, Fri-Sun. I was absolutely gutted to see that on a poster having just splashed out 6 quid on a bottle.

On a different topic, Steve, if Tatty Nocturne and Tatty NV were the same price which would you get?
