    Lol - the good old 70s!

    Not had this sherry before from Aldi, but have bought a number of their dessert wines (Eiswein, Auslese/Spätlese, etc), all of which have been superb, so I'm confident this dry sherry will be good, if they've aimed for similar standards.

    Visited a pub in Keswick today for lunch, called The Dog & Gun. Tried an ale called Woof & Bang (created by the Keswick Brewing Co for this particular pub). Nice it was too imo, although I'm not much of a beer drinker so what do I know? May not appeal to you pissheads sorry I mean discerning types. Elsewhere in the country it's called Thirst Gold.

    Had the above sherry today, served chilled with some canapés , and it was lovely. Typical quality dry Fino sherry, which one would expect from the likes of Tio Pepe, but IMO with more depth and flavour. It really is superb value for money. I'm off to buy another couple of bottles tomorrow for Xmas!

    Thumbs up Roussanne Domaine du Grand Selve 2018

    From Aldi, a fantastic, crisp, fresh and fruity white from the Languedoc-Roussillon area of France.

    Ideal with all types of seafood, but it has enough body and structure to accompany more oily and robust white fish, such as salmon. And at £5.99, just stupidly cheap for the quality on offer, and thus highly recommended in that context!



    Think at least £8.99 elsewhere!

    It was certainly kinder to my constitution than the first time I visited Keswick parent-free (September 1978). When (I believe) a rogue pint of Jennings put paid to my first date with a lovely student nurse who lived in the town. I accidentally did a Cumberland sausage in my pants, and that was the end of that. But I saw her the next evening, where we ate at the aforementioned Dog & Gun, where I had, yes, Cumberland sausage!

    I am drinking a sensational Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano that I bought from the Co-op for 12 quid I think, which for this wine is bargain-tastic. It's a DOCG 2015 Riserva.

    It's pretty rare to find a VNDM outside of specialist wine stores, so to get a really good one from the Co-op is a real find. Always a favourite of mine on the rare occasions I drink it, I much prefer it to Chianti for example which uses a very similar Sangiovese blend but this is a little darker, with much more depth and texture. Really sumptuous!

    Good recco, Jules. Co-op often do some nice wines, and I'm a big fan of VNdiM, so will keep an eye out for that
