wonder how many people actually paid £29 for this, call me cynacal but these so called better than half price deals reek of original overpricing :?
#4
All these 'half price' champagne deals were reported in the paper at the weekend, they showed that the so called discount prices were the normal prices all year except in the last 59 days where they bumped them up so they could then show this new 'sale price' instead.

Not to mention none of the cheap champagnes were ever worth £25-30 anyway!!!

Hi this champagne has been posted on HUKD before at £15 per bottle at Tesco and that was in august 2008 which was nowhere near christmastime.

This is a comment from that HUKD:

STUkrugen
Bought this a month or so ago from Tesco when it was last on offer at half price (£13). We ended up buying around 7 bottles for our Wedding and having never tried it before it was a bit of a gamble. However I have to say it is one of the nicest Champagnes I have tasted and some of our guests asked us where we bought it and they went and bought some too. We bought another bottle afterwards too just to enjoy for ourselves.

Its currently £10 so it seems like a great deal on this one. :santa:
#6
And was £12.99 in the 'sale' in 2008 here too http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23437317-champagne-prices-cut-to-tempt-romantics.do

Point is these so called expensive chapagnes are not to be found at the higher price very often and usually only to then advertise them at a wonderful discount!!!! Not uncommon TBH.
#7
Yeah i have noticed lately when supermarkets offer these "Good deals" that i feel more and more dubious that the pre sale price is hard to believe.

I love fizzy white wine but I'd rather drink cava or prosecco than cheap champagne.

Decent champagne is lovely stuff but give me 3 bottles of Lidl's cava for 1 bottle of this stuff.
#11
i had some of this stuff over the weekend and it was nice
#12
I find it interesting that some people like to make such deals hot. Has anyone ever heard of 'Charles de Cazanove' before? No, I thought not. The name was probably made up by Tesco, but it has champagne on the label so suddenly people think it's worth buying.

If I wanted sparkling wine, I doubt I would do much better than to buy 2 bottles of cava or sekt for my £10, or even get a bottle of Scotch instead. I LOL last week when people were creaming themselves over some Champagne at £60. Let's face it people, you've been alcoholically Tangoed.

.....waits for some smart Alec to say they are closely acquainted with this brew. :whistling:

Excuse me....we bought this Champagne for our Wedding last year and it is the best Champagne I have ever tasted. Everyone at the Wedding asked where we got it from and bought some themselves. A lovely drink but in my experience empty shelves is the norm when this offer is on.

HOT !

It is disgusting really....leave well alone....leave it on the shelves seriously...it's horrible !! Listen to everyone slating it who have never tasted it before, they know what's best.

*runs off to Tesco...woohooooo*

In 1902, as a prelude to the entente cordiale, Edward VII, king of the United Kingdom and Ireland, was received in Paris with the 1893 Champagne Charles De Cazanove Brut, of which he was very fond. Edward VII had it specially imported from France with his own personal label.

read more:

Champagne Charles de Cazanove

In the 16th Century, a glassmaker from the Bigeault family travelled to Venice, the world centre for the glass industry at the time, to add to his skills and experience. On his return he added the name Casanova to his own, i.e. “New House” and gave it the French form “Cazanove”.

The growth of a brand

In 1811, Charles Gabriel De Cazanove, a young man aged 24 from a family of master glassmakers founded his own Champagne House in Avize, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs.

But rather than the founder, it was his son, Charles Nicolas, born in 1818, who contributed most to the growth of the brand. He was a businessman and chairman of the Epernay district horticultural society, and applied his botanical knowledge to the fight against phylloxera and turned Charles De Cazanove into a respectable company.
In his time, the House supplied, among others, Prince Metternich, an Austrian diplomat and politician, and the French presidents during the Third Republic: MacMahon, Sadi Carnot and Emile Loubet.

In 1902, as a prelude to the entente cordiale, Edward VII, king of the United Kingdom and Ireland, was received in Paris with the 1893 Champagne Charles De Cazanove Brut, of which he was very fond. Edward VII had it specially imported from France with his own personal label.

From generation to generation

On the death of Charles Nicolas De Cazanove in 1903, his sons Franck and Joseph passed the business on to the two following generations. Joseph’s son, Roger de Cazanove, who took control of the House in the 1920’s, was deported to Germany and died in captivity in the Nazi camps. His brother, Hubert, followed him and died shortly before the end of the fighting. Roger and Hubert de Cazanove’s nephew, Mr. Chiroussot, ran the company for a few years until 1954, when Amaury de Cazanove, grandson of Charles Nicolas, became company chairman.

Amaury called in Sylvain de Sournac, highly experienced in vine-growing and wine-making, to run Champagne de Cazanove. Sylvain de Sournac was a good administrator and shrewd businessman, and managed to achieve a tenfold increase in the House’s sales. Amaury de Cazanove’s arrival was accompanied by the Banque Vernes taking up a share of the capital, which it resold to Martini.
So, in 1958, the company found itself under the influence of Martini & Rossi and, from 1983, under the control of the Moët – Hennessy Group, which finally decided to part company in 1985 and sold it to SA Magenta - Epernay, a merchant and distributor for prestige brands, better known under its acronym S.A.M.E.
Maison Charles De Cazanove was bought out in 2004 and has become the flagship of a Champagne family group.

An increasing reputation

Nowadays, Maison de Cazanove is working on the reputation of Champagne and its people. As a special partner to the “Comédie de Reims” theatre, it is associated with a range of artistic projects and is particularly involved in the realms of cinema and music. In May 1991, the House celebrated the fortieth anniversary of “Cahiers du Cinéma” in Cannes, and then became a partner to the 45th Cannes Festival in 1992.

In 1992, in collaboration with Epernay Council, the House invited film-maker Jean-Pierre Mocky to film for a week in the champagne capital. He presented his film, “Le mari de Léon” Léon’s husband”, at eh Cannes Festival and gave a preview showing to the people of Epernay on 1st June. Since 2002, the House has supported and been a partner to the “Flâneries Musicales de Reims”.

An ancestral tradition open to progress

Today, Champagne Charles de Cazanove enjoys the use of efficient oenological and technological facilities and produces over 3 million bottles a year. Vinification mostly takes place in stainless steel vats, but where necessary, some wines spend time in oak to acquire that wonderful fullness that oak barrels provide. The wines take time to age in the traditional Champagne chalk cellar.

Authentic wines from a noble terroir, made in line with an ancestral tradition and open to the best that progress can offer the champagne lover, Charles De Cazanove wines are enjoyed throughout the world.

Seems like its been around for a long time with an interesting history I don't think Tesco made the name up.

#18
I can't comment on this one in particular, but for a few quid more you'd be better off buying TESCO's own brand non-vintage, which will have been approved and selected by their own tasters and will represent the best value for money by far.

If people leave the snobbery that goes with serving "supermarket branded" fizz at the door, they are amongst some of the best available for under £30.
#19
Or you could just avoid all overprixed fizzy grape juice and save yourself some money.
#20
Tesco are getting a REALLY bad name for inflating prices before an item goes on offer. My favourite is their "Ogio" wine - its worth about £4, but is sold at £8-9 before being reduced by 50%.

Other supermarkets criticised them for their half-priced £20 frozen Turkeys that were being sold for £20 everywhere else anyway.

£10 for a decent champagne is a good price - it would be worth buying a bottle to see if its worth taking a punt - I'm glad I got plenty half price @Morrisons.

But is it any good?

Cava is fine but it's still worth paying a bit to get something decent. With the flat-tax on a bottle of wine you are paying about £2 for the bottle and it's contents after tax is deducted. You don't get much for £2.

As I said in the linked post, this cheap cava is perfectly acceptable, representing good value for money for anyone who does not want to spend more than £3.50. I wouldn't post a deal for a wine without actually sampling the product in the first place.
#24
I find it incredible that there are two pages of posts, majority negative....and I'm the only one who has actually tried it and loved it and can highly recommend it.

Please everyone, either buy it and try it for yourselves or leave the thread alone. It's ridiculous having this snobbery when you haven't even tasted it. You don't have to have an opinion on everything you know.
#25
STUkrugen,

Most negativity has been about Tescos use of creative pricing before putting an offer price on goods. If the wine is drinkable its a good deal.

Interesting that it seems the only place that actually sells this is Tesco though?????? Appears as links on other sites but noone actually sells it other than Tesco.

As said above I guess the posts here are those questioning the validity of the 'offer' rather than the quality of the champagne but nevertheless I still argue that at the original rrp there will be a lot better champagnes available out there from other retailers

Hi. I agree with you in your earlier posts when you say that champagne prices are inflated. However a very quick web search revealed that Champagne Charles de Cazanove is also on sale at somerfield and Oddbins:

Somerfield: http://www.somerfield.co.uk/offers/deals/beers-wines-and-spirits.asp
Oddbins: http://www.oddbins.com/products/productDetail.asp?productcode=47479

The company by the way is owned by G H Martell which purchased it in 2004.

"£NaN" at Oddbins. That's a good price. Nice bit of copy and pasting earlier though.

HOT !


Youre excused lol, No issues with the product, just the 'original' price rubbish that lots of places seem to be doing recently.
#31
As always with this particular Champers, empty shelves.

Tried at my local Tesco this morning and it doesn't even have a shelf marker yet, let alone any stock. Last time this was on offer around 6 months ago I didn't see any sign of any stock either, though it was marked on the shelves. Is this a case of Tesco commiting 5 bottles only and that's yer lot, rergardless of how long the offer lasts?

Be interesting to see just how widespread this offer is.

Coatbridge Extra had a full round circular stand with this on it - just opposite the spirits/beer aisle. I bought a couple of bottles since some people have said it's nice. At a tenner it's worth a try - will report back with my findings, lol.
#33
I'll have a more intense rummage around our Extra then if it's playing hard to get. ;-)
#34
Got two bottles today. They weren't on the normal Champagne shelves they were on a seperate shelf with some special offer products nearly at the end of the spirits aisle.

:-)

its like eating poo and ****

Charles de Cazenove is indeed an old and respected name in Champagne... I bought 2 bottles in a large french supermarket in the south of France in October at 25 euros (£20) a bottle.... I am no fan of Tescos but in this case the offer is a good one
