TescoBetween midnight tonight and Tuesday 20 May the supermarket is offering a 15% discount on all its fine wines bought via the Tesco wine website, Wine by the Case.

    Mmmm. Large amounts of 2009 Bordeaux that Tesco over-bought, so now wants to re-coup some cash? Welcome to the fine wine market. 15% discount (off an already inflated price compared to the market?) could hardly be described as ‘slashing’.
