What Price Taittinger?
Note the spelling of “Taittanger”.
On the tasting sheet provided, the retail price of the Taittinger Brut Réserve NV was given as €47. Yet just today in Tesco’s Merrion Centre store I saw this champagne on offer for €30, representing a claimed ‘saving’ of €29.99! Shurely shome mistake? Can somebody not do their sums? Or is the explanation more complex than that? (It is worth noting that the stock comes not from Taittinger’s official importer here in Ireland but from the UK agent.) Which all leaves me wondering: What really is the correct price for the Taittinger Brut Réserve NV? Well you might ask. Ever wondered how long is a piece of string?
