Ok. So I'm not being funny but I was shopping in Tesco (bad move) and they had shelves and shelves of Prosseco and Cava but hardly any champagne! Where's the champagne gone??

They're quite low on stock at the moment. It's never been a good branch, but I remember it having a better range 15 years ago.

My local Co-oP have some delightfull vintage champers on the shelves often picked up at 9.99 or less, I still have a case of pink purchased from Morrisons at just 15 a bottle back in the summer. keep the old peepers open for bargains and do not let the celler stock rundown, you only miss something when you havnt got it, And thats a Fact

I'm not much of a drinker anymore, but I never understood the fuss over champagne. By all the hype, I was expecting Cava or Proseccos to taste like rats piss by comparison, but they're often very nice, and often nicer than many champagnes. I think the Champagne region has pulled off an amazing job in de-valuing its competition.

The reality is that one can spend 30+ on a bottle of champagne, and it could turn out tasting worse than a 5 bottle of Prosecco.
