Lidl to launch their largest French wine sale

Lidl has announced that it will launch an extensive new range of French wines into stores from Monday, 8th September (while stocks last).

The range will include 43 wines from across the classic regions of France, including Bordeaux, Bourgogne and the Loire Valley, and will be the supermarket’s largest wine offering to date.

The focus for the promotion is to offer premium wines, with prices ranging from €7.99 to €65.

Each wine has been rated by Master of Wine, Richard Bampfield, one of only 312 Masters of Wine in the world.

Here are more details on the wines that will be in store:

Bordeaux:

Arguably the most famous wine region in the world, Bordeaux is home to more than 10,000 producers. Famed for its superb reds and long-lived wines made by historic wine estates, most Bordeaux wines are dry, medium-bodied reds, with the finest and most prestigious coming from the great châteaux of Haut-Médoc, Graves, Saint-Émilion and Pomerol.

Closerie des Bories AOP 2010 RRP: €11.99
Rating: 88
This has exotic toast and black cherry aromas, which lead to a full-bodied gutsy palate with the warmth and depth of flavour one expects from the great 2010 vintage.

Pessac-Léognan AOP 2009 RRP: €19.99
Rating: 92
The great benefit of the wonderful 2009 vintage is that it has produced wine that is ripe and generous even when young. This is sumptuous and characterful, showing a good mix of ripe, black fruits and toasty oak. Characteristically dry on the finish, it is delicious now and will improve for a further 3 to 4 years.

Bourgogne:

Some of the most exciting wines in the world come from Burgundy. Red Burgundy wines are typically fruity, velvety and subtle.

La Croix des Célestins Fleurie AOP 2013 RRP: €11.99

Rating: 87

Fleurie is often considered the jewel in Beaujolais’ crown, consistently producing wines that are the best in the region. This has good depth of flavour, with a crisp, crunchy finish, reminiscent of a fresh red apple.

Loire:
The Loire region is located in the middle stretch of the Loire River in central France. It is known for producing excellent white wines and is the second largest producer of sparkling wines in France, after Champagne.

Cave des Vins De Sancerre AOP 2013 RRP: €15.99
Rating: 90

This has lovely scents of elderflower and pear, leading to a palate that is intensely flavoured yet still balanced and highly refreshing. A high quality dry white that would match well with white fish or the local favourite, goat’s cheese.

Alsace:

The Alsace region is located in Eastern France and shares borders with Germany and Switzerland. It produces almost exclusively white wines which are known for their clean, fresh taste.

Pinot Blanc AOP 2013 RRP: €9.99
Rating: 88

Gently aromatic, with notes of white flowers and pear. Medium-dry, fruity and highly appetising – most enjoyable, versatile white.

Côtes Du Rhône:

The Côtes du Rhône (Rhône Valley) is a long, narrow area which stretches on both banks of the river Rhône. A wide range of grape varieties are grown in the hillside vineyards of the Côtes du Rhône, producing a varied range of excellent red wines that are notable for their rich and spicy flavours.

Domain Messire de Very Séguret Côtes du Rhône Villages 2013 RRP: €12.99
Rating: 90
Good wines from the Rhône Valley combine the juicy, crunchy fruit of the Grenache grape with the characteristic aromas of spice, pepper and garrigue from the region. This is a fine example, still youthful, with a mouthwatering finish and probably with its best yet to come. Best drunk with grilled meats, this is highly satisfying and will age well for another two or three years.
