Lidl are doing a couple of ‘gold medal’ Bordeaux wines at a good price just now
Have you tried drinking the contents ? If its good what are the Chateaux years etc. So I can look out for them here in deepest darkest Burgundy.
I often find British / German & Scandinavian beer for sale in NOZ most of the time it’s really good & sometimes… well should have been consumed & few months ago.
My cellar is looking a bit empty & sorry for its self so could do with a few crates of Bordeaux.
The reason I posted Warren, ‘Was’ because It,s good, we bought a bit yesterday, tried it, went back today, to buy another 6 cases. We wouldn’t recommend rubbish, normally not great fans of Lidl.
The bonus there today was a huge box of fruit and veg for 1€, cheap barbie tonight, huge fruit pie and a hand out to the neighbours too, getting to like Lidl more
Come on then Bill spill the beans, give us the names of the bottles. I’ll take you word its good, but saying that a French phase comes to mind… les coloris & les gouts
You will need to go an’ ‘ave a look yersel’ Warren, I get no commision from Mr Lidl
Warren, if you go into Lidl and look for “Gold Medal Bordeaux” … you will see for yourself.
Lidl is often a source of good quality stuff at a reasonable price
Spoil sport, come on grass up! If not, I’ll have to get equip myself with corkscrew & glass, buy a bottle of every wine with gold medal & sit in car park testing, then go back (if still sober to purchase the best one. Mrs Warren to drive me & my testing in the car park will not impress her one bit. She thinks the Brits are a little eccentric at best if not completely crackers.
Well we did take it home, my ‘Oenologue’ is French, I rely on Her assessment
Super U are doing some great ‘gold medal’ Graves at the moment - Chateau Landiras 2015 and many others and are great value for money. They also have a fantastic selection of white wines from the Languedoc including a silver medal winning corbieres 2015 from Chateau Ribaute which l can only describe as summer in a bottle - At just over 5 euros it seemed only right to get a couple of cases.
I must say that the Lidl prices are now not so much cheaper than those that can be found in the Hypermarkets in and around Bordeaux - and normally the choice is far greater - Carrefour in the Arcines shopping Center in Begles and Super U in Podensac are recommended. Santé - Avec moderation bien sûr.
Been nuttin’ in out super markets lately Dan, the cave was startin’ to look, a bit ‘bleak’!
Our Lidl ‘gold rubbish’ was a good bit less than 5€, and topped it up a bit But, Graves is often good
Here in deepest darkest Burgundy we are drinking a superb Cremant de Bourgogne for 6 euros delivered.
Similarly an excellent everyday Beaujolais for just over 3 euros , again delivered.
Father in Law is a fan Jane, sadly when we eat there, I have to take my own wine, I’m probably, just a philistine
Lidl has it in the uk this week too - tried a glass last night and was pretty reasonable.
