Very happy with almost everything eatable in FR, inc wine - esp wh wine. One of the highlights of my wine drinking life was a glass of Ch d’Yquem. That and a bottle of Ch Lynch Bages 1966.
I go for ‘les petites danseuses’ in garlic butter and ditto escargots - so, pretty much all except andouillette.
But there is no sub for P/san.
I just worked out that the 5l box of perfectly slurpable Pay 'Oc rouge costs me the same as I was paying per bottle in SP: 1,85€. [How the mighty expense account wallah has fallen] The whisky I was buying in SP is on sale here at x2 the price.
I think it’s the small/medium size of my nearest Carre4, a ‘Market’, that’s the problem. Lack of space/local preferences. There’s a Hyper size Eric the Cleric at Agneau, on the S.E. edge of St. Lo. - 20 mins. I shall have a trundle up there to check it all out.
And I will report back to Stella when I find P/san. We can’t keep her in M.I mode, waiting to know. I see on line that Eric the Cleric has it .
Grand Frais is on the NW outskirts of Caen - 50 mins. Worth popping in if happening that way but not under l/down.
