Investment opportunity ...

Telegraph: Introducing the £10 bottle of champagne

There is a glut of champagne, which keeps a long time. Almost a liquid gold except cheap. You could do worse if you bought 60 bottles of the stuff while waiting for house prices to come down.

Champagne does not keep well, unlike some red wines. Not really an investment, especially in a falling market.

Also you'd need a house (with a wine cellar) to store it in!

Do you think there could be a bubble?

Mmmm, at least Gold can sit in a safe and do bugger-all. If my money was tied up in booze I'd be broke very quickly...

Thanks for the light-hearted post :) have been needing some light relief with all the bad news recently. I know champagne doesn't keep very well so I might buy some and drink it! At least I feel slightly happier now than I did in 2007 when everyone else was presumably drinking the stuff.

Tattinger has been around the £23 to £25 mark for years

The horrid truth is that the Champagne vineyards no longer produce the best bubbly..

Some vineyards in the south and west of England are now producing sparkling wines that frequently trump the best the French can offer, when tasted blind..

Personally I rarely drink sparkling wines - Port and Claret are more my style..:)

Marks & Spencer and Tescos have been doing their own champagne at 10 quid for years. Personally I think Cava beats champagne hands down
