Ah, to be in the sun drenched vineyards of France today …..
The next best is to drop down to your local Lidl over the next few days and bag a bargain from their latest FRENCH WINE SALE.
Each of the main vineyards of France are covered. I particularly like the Marechal Bourgogne Aligoté AOP €9.99 for its lean and austere character but I have no doubt more will enjoy at least one of the five different Macon whites. Chardonnays from the Maconnaise are particularly good these days!
Sitting in? Telly on? Open up Bordeaux with the simple and enjoyable Château Landonnet 2015 at only €8.99
These sales are not meant to introduce you to the Fine Wines of France as much as they are to show you the versatility of French wine styles at very affordable prices. Try a Madiran at €7.99 and compare it to Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenere blend from the Languedoc Roussillon at the same price – great fun at great prices. LOVE these SALES
By the By: have you ever tried the Lidl Chateuneuf du Pape? you wont be disappointed!
