A glass of champagne is the epitome of celebration, whether it’s an anniversary with your significant other, a birthday toast or just about any other occasion that demands some fizz. Plus, we’re still optimistic for some good weather this September, so there’s really no better reason to pop open a bottle and say “cheers!”
Thanks to its luxury status, the French tipple is an indulgent and often expensive treat. However, there are plenty of deals now at supermarkets such as Ocado, and wine specialists such as Laithwaites and Majestic.
For anyone looking to stock up on the sparkling stuff, here at IndyBest, we believe there’s always a reason to source your next bottle (or case) of champagne. So, in that spirit, we’ve picked the best deals, ranging from individual bottles to cases of six, that are perfect for warm, sunny evenings to come.
Featuring some of the most recognised champagne makers, including Laurent-Perrier and Taittinger, there’s something for everyone to enjoy while bagging a bargain.

This rosé option featured in our round-up of the best champagnes 2022, with our tester noting that, despite Tattinger’s reputation, this is a “relatively well-priced” fizz that has “refreshing, red-fruit flavours”. Thanks to Majestic, there’s a saving of £60 on a case of six. Snap it up while you can.
In our review of the best champagnes 2022, our writer said: “Lanson is one of the most well-known names for mid-priced champagnes”. Described as having a “floral scent and berry and grape flavours”, this rosé sounds like a lovely refreshing tipple.
If you’re not into pink champagne, and would rather Taittinger’s brut, this one is the one to choose. This bottle needs little introduction, and is known for its excellence. It’s not a huge discount, mind, but you can grab a case of six while there’s £36 off.
While it’s not the best deal we’ve ever found on Louis Roederer champagne, bargain bubbles are bargain bubbles, and you can now save 10 per cent on a bottle of this collection 243, which comes in its very own gift box. A blend dominated by chardonnay (which was of top quality in the 2017 vintage) provides aromas of ripe, sweet fruit complemented by subtle oaky notes. Pinot noir and meunier grapes from the Vallée de la Marne are said to give the wine a broad, juicy – yet smooth – character.
The phrase “Bollinger for a bargain” isn’t a common one, so you might want to snap up this deal. The brand’s special cuvée is a blend of crus, with some vintages and younger reserves, and was first launched in 1911. Currently reduced by £18 for a case of six bottles, sit back and sip on a beautifully aromatic complexity, with apple and pear fruit notes, which give way to a creamy, caramel-like finish.
This case of six from Piper-Heidsieck now has more than £70 off. This champagne house has 235 years of history, so, we think it’s safe to say it knows its stuff. This bottle is a fresh pinot noir-dominated fizz with flavours of pear and apple, plus a hint of citrus. This sounds like the perfect sundowner.
One more for good measure. Snap up this bottle of Bollinger at a steal – with £27 off, it could be the perfect gift for you or your special someone. Housed inside the classic pink packaging, drink this bottle with your partner, friends or enjoy it on your own – we won’t judge.
Grab a bottle of one of the world’s most iconic champagnes while there’s a 17 per cent saving to be had at Amazon. Featuring the tanginess of green apple and citrus fruit, the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers, as well as the elegance of more-mature notes, such as brioche, cereals and fresh nuts, this is a bottle to stock up on for the summer and beyond.
Enjoy £72 off this case of six bottles of Louis Roederer champagne – talk about bargain bubbles. A blend dominated by chardonnay (which was of top quality in the 2017 vintage) provides aromas of ripe, sweet fruit complemented by subtle oaky notes. Pinot noir and meunier grapes from the Vallée de la Marne are said to give the wine a broad, juicy, yet smooth character.
One of Champagne’s hidden gems, this cuvée is made from chardonnary and pinot noir and is a blend of three good vintages. A very dry champagne, it is light, delicate and complex, with flavours of ripe nectarine, honey and roasted nuts. And right now you can save a cool £10.
