    2014 Château Brown, Graves Pessac-Leognan

    Intrigued by the name of the château, I recently picked up a bottle in Paris:




    http://www.chateau-brown.com/en/chateau-brown-rouge/

    Not a château recently bought by some jumped-up plutocrat, who fancies trying his hand at wine making, the estate was bought by a Scottish wine merchant, John Lewis Brown back in 1795. Today it is managed by Jean-Christoph Mau, who bought the estate in 2004.

    Set on the oldest terroir in the Bordeaux wine region, Graves, the château is at the heart of the Pessac-Leognan appellation.

    55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. 13% ABV, €45 a bottle.

    I'll be laying this one down for a few years to achieve its best.





    Pacé Marco - another Bordeaux!

    Gotta be careful with that stuff - next news you'll be returning to the offy for a second bottle, and the bloke behind the counter will comment on your lack of a skirt, and your wearing your knickers as a hat. No problem though, you won't remember any of it

    For fans of quality wheat beer, Lidl are selling this stuff, as part of their Alpenfest promotion, for 99p a can, and which is just gorgeous:



    Creamy, zesty, hoppy and smooth - as good as the likes of Hoegaarden, IMO, for a fraction of the price!

    You'll find it near their 'middle isle' in a separate section, along with some other Alpenfest stuff, not where the rest of the beers are. I'm going tomorrow to get a load more!

    I like wheat beer, but many are put off by the cloudy appearance. Their loss!

    Indeed, Barry. Trust me, this stuff is top notch: proper German wheat beer, which you'd pay a LOT more for if it had a 'fancy label'... For lover's of wheat beer [Alex, where are you?] this one from Lidl is a major bargain!!

    Quite liked Wheat beer, but not as a daily "get pissed" drink lol.. Wheated bourbon done well is stunning too. Weller special reserve is one of the daddys imo

    Lol - never had a "daily get pissed drink". That's more of a Scottish, than Italian phenomenon!

    Alcohol - any alcohol - should always be enjoyed in moderation.
