Lidl whilst stocks last bargain


#141

So… our Shoreham visit to Lidl was a fair success - though no Margaux… :frowning:

Still, managed to get my hands on 2 x 2013 Château La Couspaude Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé and 1 of their Saint Emilion Grand Cru. The former was £19.99 and the latter £11.99 - so not a bad bargain.
Couldn’t resist an Austrian Riesling too, from Pfaffl:

Ready for my evening tipple now!.. :crazy_face:

Don’t want to send you on a wild goose chase but Worthing LIDL has seven of the Marquis de Terme this afternoon


#143

I suspect you were replying to me, rather than @MarkC? It’ll take him longer than me to get to Worthing :wink:
But thanks for the tip! Not sure when I’ll be heading to West Sussex again, but can always make up a reason I guess!! :grin:

Drinking Lidl, Carpinus Hárslevelu, Tokaj 2017 for £7.99 . Decanter give it 88 points agree really interesting wine for the money, a bit muscat like, but unique. Worth picking up if you like zesty aromatic whites

I had this last week , I would agree with your description, my Aunt who was visiting really liked it as like you said had that almost muscat aromatic to it.


#146

Not only Lidl, Aldi have developed a taste for really good beers, at very good prices. Surprisingly including some small local breweries. Maybe it’s Lidl for wine and Aldi for beer?


#147

Was in an Aldi in Sanlúcar de Barrameda this week, they had some ‘artisanal’ bottled beer from Seville, at €1.19 a bottle.

I’m joining rather late on this thread so apologies if I’m repeating information. a Hungarian Cabernet Franc from Schieber has appeared in our usually unexciting local store. I thoroughly recommend it if you like your CF in the European style - fragrant, grippy, herbaceous and slightly chilled (12.5%).


#149

Like you, I thoroughly enjoyed this Cab Franc, @wineyg! Excellent value for money in my book! :ok_hand:


#150

Yes, at £6.99 it’s a bargain. And at 12.5% it doesn’t slay you when drinking a glass with a week day meal. CF is a real favourite of mine, any more recommendations?
Just had delivery of Tokara but think it will be a richer New World style.


#151

… and that is one of their basic wines, I mean Schieber.


#152

Thanks szaki1974 Any other notable East European CF in the UK? Or Northern Italian?


#153

I have not seen Hungarian ones, others I was not really looking for.


#154

Please can you mentor me on how to do links, pictures etc on this blog. I’m not social media savvy as you can probably guess.
Thanks.


#155

Will happily PM you my cheap pearls of wisdom! :wink:
