    Think of it as a 'poor man's' Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but it won't be very 'poor'!

    Utter bargain for a wine that could easily cost double that in a 'fancy' wine shop. I'd pop along ASAP, and grab some if you can!

    And for your good lady, a rather nice Muscadet Sevre et Maine: https://www.lidl.co.uk/p/the-french-...t-maine/p44215

    Lovely wine that, chilled, either as an aperitif or with some seafood pasta or risotto!

    Marco.

    Just in case you pop in Marco, the Gigondas was really nice mate another great recommendation.

A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Speyside 8yr old aptly named sherry bomb.
    Actually although sherry forward it wasnot really that much of a bomb first day I tried it but since it's had air in bottle it's much more sherryful.

    Some drams like some air
