I popped into my local Lidl store ( Exeter ) to grab some milk and took a quick look at their wines. I noticed they had some Clos du marquis 2003 and Château Boyd Cantenac 2011 As there was no obvious price I ask a member of Staff to check the price for me. She came back to tell me both bottles are £14.99 and only have limited stock,with a huge smile on my face I thanked her and then took 4 bottles each.
worth a quick look in your nearest Lidl
Indeed! And I think they also got a good ‘nose’ for what is up and coming. I was pleasantly surprised to see them stocking a Chardonnay from the Jura, for example, and they sell some interesting Gewurtzs as well, which is hardly wine for the masses. Always worth a quick visit (and hubby loves their German beer too!)
I took to emailing Lidl about their horrendous selection in my local store! Its literally shocking and vast difference from this time last year. I do believe they select certain wine to go to certain stores… kinda annoys me…waiting for a response from them.
Leah did Lidl ever respond to your email?
My local Lidl have released some more this week, there doesn’t seem to be anything on the website about them being available which I find odd. If they can sell these at £ 14.99 a bottle then I would defo advertise it .
