Treat yourself to a bottle of the good stuff while supermarkets and wine shops’ discount prices

A glass of champagne is the epitome of celebration, whether it’s an anniversary with your significant other, a birthday toast, job promotion or any other milestone.

Thanks to its luxury status, the French beverage is an indulgent, and often expensive treat. However, there are plenty of deals now at both supermarkets – including Asda, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Morrisons – and wine specialists such as Laithwaites and Majestic.

We’ve picked the best deals, which range from individual bottles to cases of six or 12 that are perfect for dinner parties, barbecues or celebrating with friends and family.

Featuring some of the most well-recognised champagne makers, including Laurent-Perrier, Taittinger and Veuve Clicquot, there’s something for everyone to enjoy while bagging a bargain.

For tried-and-tested bottles, check out our ​​guide to the best champagne to celebrate with on any occasion, too.
