So we’ve talked about best under-£7 wines, and best off-the-shelf bargains (where it seems a shop has a small batch of wine they’re flogging for a crazy price) but what about those everyday bargains that stick around for a bit longer, that you almost don’t want to tell people about?
Regardless of price (from proper bargain to fine wine), I love tasting the kind of wine where you double-take and think “HOW much?” and can’t quite believe your luck, knowing you’d gladly pay significantly more for a wine of that quality. And then quickly buy a case before it all disappears…
So for me, my current faves are:
Sooooo complex and rich for this price. Every time I see it’s still in stock I buy another one.
Like a baby white Burgundy (full disclosure, I can’t afford to drink much white Burgundy so I’m not an expert… ) but even if you don’t agree with that it’s just a ridiculously lovely chardonnay for under a tenner.
Aldi’s Cremant de Jura is only £7.99 - less than most Prosecco these days - but if you want a ‘just because’ fizz moment that still delivers great flavour I really love picking up a bottle of this.
Anyway, I clearly only started this topic so I could steal your everyday bargains and fill my wine-rack with them, so over to you…!
