Anyone tried this? Aldi £9.95.
Wow, it’s £15 in my local Aldi and that’s the reduced price! Would love to know what you think if you open it soon.
Thinking of holding for a few years.
My step-brother notified me about this today and so I came along here wondering if it was any good. Seems like a genuine discount - not some kind of naked/virgin wines scam.
I bought a couple of these online along with a Chene Liege 2017 and a d’Arsac 2016.
It was a decent drop, even for the £14.99 I paid. Drinking OK now but no hurry, should evolve a bit further but I don’t think for 5 years plus.
In case you also see it, the d’Arsac is not ready, needs several more years. I paid £16,99 for that v TWS selling same year for c £27.
I really don’t see how you can go wrong for £9.99 for the Moulinet, I’d jump at that price. As ever, the only question would I guess be storage conditions.
Does anyone know anything about Rene Lamy Chassagne-Montrachet rouge? I picked up a couple of bottles of 2015/2016 for £7 each at a co-op.
Ardanza £20 at majestic in the mix six
Bought 3 from Aldi Holmfirth @£9.99 ea. Strange that it is a fiver more in some branches? anyway… will open a bottle tonight and post some comments.
Interesting that IWSC say it is 90% Merlot, AND 10% Caberinta (Aldi | Château Moulinet 2016 | Still Wine | IWSC) - although elsewhere it’s listed as 60% Merlot, 30% cab Franc, 10% cab sauv. The Chateau website itself lists it as 85 % Merlot, 15 % Cab Franc. Who knows?
Be interested to hear what you think. It’s not one of the top chateau by any stretch but then neither is it a fake Pomerol, I found it representative. I’ve still got one bottle left, probably will leave it for another year or so.
I am pretty sure it has some Cab Franc in it (I like that grape and seem to detect it even at low %) but I don’t think it’s got any Cab Sauv in it. There is another similar sounding wine, Moulinet Lassere and I think also a Grand Moulinet. I wonder if people mix them up.
Here you go: Like you say, not a top chateau… but I thought it decent especially at the price.
Thanks, always interested to hear the opinions of others on wines I’ve bought or drunk.
Have a great evening.
In addition, to Ardanza at 20. Tondonia at 27 and Guigal St Jo at 19.5. At Majestic Mix six prices.
I shopped local and got Ardanza 2015, Tondonia 2010 and Guigal 2019 vintages. Two possible vintages per wine shown on the website.
Notice they have Rhone Courac Laudun 2017 @ £9.99 too good alt to guigal
Got my ardanza and Tondonia waiting to collect. Please let it be 2010 tindonia
The Arana GR is 27 too but haven’t tried that
CVNE Imperial for £19 is also a good deal.
No Tondonia local for me sadly, and the Ardanza is still 2015. Offer in until April 10th so plenty of time to return to check again
The “more details” section on the website states that the Ardanza is the 2016 vintage (the header of course states 2015/2016). Similar story with the Tondonia 2009/2010, clicking on more details states it’s the 2010. I’ve plumped for 6 of the Ardanza hoping it is indeed the 2016 (as already have a large case of the 2015 bought EP). I might drop Majestic a line to confirm…
Call to my local Majestic yesterday confirmed selling the 2015 Ardanza. I haven’t seen 2016 anywhere as yet.
It was in Colchester yesterday
My info and purchase was through a call to one of my local Majestics, so they checked what they had in stock in store and would be delivering.
I prefer that approach to going through the website when more than one vintage is mentioned.
