    Not when you save approx £1.30 per bottle plus £90 if you spend enough. It also means you can buy larger quantities of a wine that you have already sampled in the UK and know its good.

    one of my crew said he had to go back after last year to complain - complain that he had not bought enough!!

    My aim in life is to spend everything I have and die owing the banks £1m but in the meantime I try to make it go as far as I can!!

    I think Majestic are an expensive source of wine in the UK - although I do use them. Their latest offers say that you save at least £2 per bottle when bought in France compared with their best UK price - not all of that is duty!

    Quite whether I am going to get even to the lowest level of the "preorder" is a different matter. My usual target for these trips is about 6-8 cases. In the good old days that was about £100 but it's gone up a bit since then

    I only buy French wine unless its a M&S dine in for two! I have not bought wine in the UK for about 10 years now.
