Next month my wife and I are going over to France for a holiday and are thinking of taking advantage of the generous personal allowances on alcohol from the EU. I will be driving so space isn’t an issue but I am wondering whether there are any recommended wines that I could stock up on at a decent price, and even better if there are any suggested supermarkets to go to. We’re not interested in cheap plonk but would like to experiment with some different bottles (getting a few of each) to trial when we’re home. I know there are ‘booze superstores’ and I’m guessing we would be avoiding them. If there are some very cheap good buys I’d obviously be up for those but I’m thinking averaging GBP10-15 a bottle.
I’m familiar with the limits and also ensuring that the limit is clearly identified at a personal level (we will each pay and mark our ‘own’) as I hear this has been a problem with overly zealous border control.
We’ll be going as far as Paris so it doesn’t need to be the Calais area.
