The Cheapest Champagne — The Ultimate Guide to Champagne Prices and Deals Across Supermarkets and Beyond

cheapest champagne

We Brits love Champagne. The popping of corks, the clinking of glasses, the sweet fizz of those bubbles. It's the ultimate way to celebrate a special occasion — even if the occasion is that it's a Friday night.

British people love Champagne so much we actually drank 8% more of it in 20201, which is remarkable considering the, ahem, challenging times we're living in.

To celebrate this champagne revival, vouchercloud unveils the best value champagne across 15 major retailers as well as where to get the cheapest Bollinger, Moët & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot and a host of other big name brands.

The cheapest Champagne of all

So what's the cheapest champagne bottle you can get? We've done the digging and it's Aldi's remarkable Nicolas de Montbart, costing just £11.49 — which works out at £2.76 per 180ml glass. If you're looking for the Champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget, and you've already spent a tonne on lemonade, this will happily do the trick. Joint second place goes to Aldi and Lidl respectively, with Veuve Monsigny Brut and a Comte de Senneval Brut respectively going for £12.99 each, just £3.12 per glass.

In third place comes ASDA's enticing Henri Cachet Champagne Brut, a snip at £13.50 a bottle and £3.24 a glass.

Aldi's Veuve Monsigny has won Silver at the 2019 Champagne Masters2 whilst Lidl's Comte de Senneval won Bronze at the 2020 International Wine & Spirits Awards3. This stuff isn't just great value — it's delicious!

Cheapest Dom Pérignon

Bad news for value fans here. If you were hoping for a single bottle of Dom Pérignon that cost less than 16 bottles of broadly decent Prosecco, we're sorry to report we couldn't find any DP for under £140. Nonetheless, if you are thinking of splashing out but are keen to make sure you're getting the best value, we've found the cheapest bottles below.

Cheapest Veuve Clicquot

Veuve Clicquot is the kind of fizz we can get on board with - delicious, prestigious but not so expensive that you'd have to remortgage your house, car and children to grab yourself a bottle. Our winner is ASDA's Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label at £35 a bottle. It's not the cheapest thing you'll have in your shopping basket (unless you're reading this article from your yacht), but definitely worth the splash for the taste.

To illustrate just how much prices can vary, we've taken Veuve Clicquot's Yellow Label 75cl, and found huge variation:

Cheapest Laurent Perrier

Our search for the cheapest Laurent Perrier unveiled something unexpected — Waitrose Cellar, not necessarily famed for being the cheapest retailer out there, managed to stock the joint-cheapest bottle of Laurent Perrier, alongside its mainstream sister Waitrose and Amazon. At £26.66, the Non-Vintage Brut comes in cheapest of all, pretty good compared to the average of £65.75 across the board.

Let's see how the Laurent Perrier La Cuvée Non-Vintage 75cl bottles stack up:

Ah, Bolly. A staple for when you're pushing the boat out / want to impress your partner's parents, Bollinger is a bottle we can all get behind. Don't worry about overspending on your next purchase, we've found that Amazon stocks the Special Cuvée Brut NV for £39.99, at £9.60 a glass. Sounds steep? Not when you compare it to the maximum price of £50 from Virgin Wines. Wherever you get it from, though, it's delicious.

What about the most expensive?

Amazon's Krug 1995 will set you back a cool £499.99, coming in at a phenomenal £120 per glass, meaning each pour is worth the average daily wage (+2 hours work!) for the UK in March 20214. We hope it's worth it.


The vouchercloud verdict

Clare Joslin, General Manager of vouchercloud, said:

"It's been a tough year for all of us, but early reports from the high street show that Champagne sales are on the up as shoppers are keen to get celebrating. In response, we at vouchercloud put together this guide to make sure consumers are saving money even when going all out.

Our research has not only found the cheapest bottles on the market, but also the huge variation that can occur in prices across different retailers. You can save yourself £9 by buying a Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label 75cl from the cheapest retailer as opposed to the most expensive!"

Tips for getting the best Champagne deals

When it comes to getting a good deal on champagne, there are a number of tips we can recommend:

  1. Try vouchercloud discounts. We specialise in bringing you great value deals on everything and champagne is no exception. The vouchercloud food and drinks vouchers page is full of great discounts and ways to save on your next bottle or 2. We'd also recommend visiting our Amazon discount codes page, ASDA vouchers page, Waitrose discounts page, Morrisons vouchers page and other supermarket pages.
  2. Wait for a big occasion. Celebration days throughout the year often bring with them Champagne deals. The likes of Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's, Mother's and Father's Day will bring with them big deals on the fizzy stuff, so if you stock up at those points you'll be able to save.
  3. Shop around. As our research shows, the same bottle can vary wildly in price, so be smart and compare prices online before you commit to a purchase.
  4. Buy in bulk. Lots of outlets give you a discount when you buy multiple bottles. Majestic has discounts for groups of 6 and Laithwaites for groups of 3. Go big and get a saving!
