Lidl wine 25% off


#1

Has anyone seen the 25% off at Lidl?

Are there any good buys at the moment or just offloading there usual stuff?

Thanks


#2

There is a St-Emilion Grand Cru 2016 from the St-Emilion co-operative (good quality wines) at £10.95 and a Macon Villages 2018 at £6.99 which are reasonable weekday wines at minus 25%.


#3

This one’s is also a cracker (though not sure if it’s part of the deal?):

Excellent value for money! :+1:


#4

Excellent heads up, thanks. Might make my way there this weekend actually.

My wine budget for the month has been substantially reduced on account of a particularly “successful” Bordeaux EP allocation by TWS :joy:


#5

It really is a lovely summer red. :heart_eyes:

Here’s the Decanter review.


#6

Thanks for the tip, just got some and with 25% off as well!

Went to one of the Lidls in Hull today, they pretty much had all the recommended wines from Decanter available, and at 25% off. https://www.decanter.com/decanter-best/best-lidl-wines-331843/

So this offer happened on the day they had random bottles of Pape clement 2013 £19…99 and Potensac 2013 £12.99, so with the 25% off as well obviously I stocked right up. Exeter Lidl if anyone is keen


#9

The Pape Clement is amazing value at 19.99, so even better at 25% off!


#10

6 bottles, £30. Mostly Decanter recs. Quaffers sorted for the month, thanks for the links!


#11

None of these in Hull, unfortunately…


#12

Wasn’t Exeter the branch that initially had this wine in Lidl (edit… actually just searched for it and it was the Boyd Cantenac and Clos du Marquis), which started a countrywide search? They must be blessed down there if it was, as my store never had anything let alone on two separate occasions.


#13

Damn, we didn’t enjoy that @ Lidl Clapham… Good for you :slight_smile:


#14

Drank both the Potensac and the Clement over the last week. Should have bought more of the Clement - very nice indeed. Both of 'em are well worth it though!


#15

Went to my nearest Lidl today…… nothing nothing as always :roll_eyes:


#16

Popped into my local Lidl today and, shock horror, they had Wine Tour wines, though not the Pape Clement or the Potensac mentioned above :frowning: . Still I did pick up a couple each of the Julienas and the Graciano Rioja. So I’m moderately happy!


#17

Grabbed a single bottle of the Potensac in Yeovil today - if I like it I’ll go back for the rest (if they’re still there). I try not to get too pernickety about vintages but I do feel like I can’t really buy a whole bunch of mid-priced 2013 claret blind.

Working in north west, dropped in to Lidl Chorley (near Preston, to you Southern folk) - picked two each of the St Emilion Grand Cru, Rasteau 2015, Chenin blanc Paarl for the princely sum of £36 ish total. Blimey, they were well priced BEFORE the 25% discount.

The Rasteau 2015 ‘Domaine de la combe Dieu’ is graced with 90 Parker points - and although the label gives little away regarding grapes it is apparently ‘chalereux’ - and goes well with ‘volailles roties et les daubes’. So tonight being midweek - roast chicken with herb butter, new potatoes & green salad.

With discount its around £8.25 - and quite frankly tasted blind I would guess a ticket 2 or 3 times that. Velvety rich with a touch of ripe black figs, a slight tannic edge from the skin. Remarkable.
