Champagne price comparison

I had a look this morning (4 February 2011) at some entry level grand marque Champagne prices online at some of the more well known retailers around town.   For a largely mass produced, mass market product, the prices vary enormously.  Here’s a snapshot:

1. Veuve Clicquot NV.  Lowest: Dan Murphy’s ($64.59 in half dozen).  Highest: Vintage Cellars ($84.99 single bottle).
2. Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV.  Lowest: Winestar ($64.99 in dozen).  Highest: Vintage Cellars ($87.49 single bottle).
3. Piper Heidsieck Red Label NV.  Lowest: Dan Murphy’s ($42.75 in half dozen).  Highest: Nick’s ($59.99)
4. Moet Chandon Brut NV.  Lowest: Nicks ($59.50 in dozen).  Highest: Vintage Cellars ($74.99 single bottle).
5. Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve NV.   Lowest: Nicks ($64 in dozen).  Highest: Vintage Cellars ($99.99 single bottle).
6. Bollinger Special Cuvee NV.  Lowest: Dan Murphy’s ($59.80 in half dozen).  Highest: Prince Wine Store ($95)
Shop around folks.
