Supermarket own-label wines feature frequently in Decanter’s recommendations and reviews, because they provide notable consistency and value for money.
While it is difficult to make great Champagne cheaply – it is a labour-intensive process, after all – there are still gems to be found on supermarket shelves under their own-label brands.
If you’re looking for recognisable names, the grandes marques can of course also be found in supermarkets.

Recent reports of Champagne shortages, attributed to high demand coupled with the length of time it takes to replenish stock, are a concern, but as it stands UK supermarkets are currently well stocked and offering their usual selection of own-brand and grandes marques labels.
There are a number of factors which influence the style of Champagne, including grapes, vintage, colour and sweetness.
The majority of the supermarket Champagne in the list below is non-vintage, with a few vintage examples.
Blanc de Blancs Champagnes offer the pure, citrus character of Chardonnay, for example the Tesco, Finest Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs 2015. Whereas Blanc de Noirs offers a richer, red-fruited character, like Waitrose own Blanc de Noirs Brut made from 100% Pinot Noir.
