Tasting note

Lovely aromas of citrus and honey, sweet, bright, appetising. Perfectly matched with rich foods such as blue cheese, crème brûlée and pâté. Sauternes is one of the most popular sweet wines. Enjoyable not just with dessert but also, as the French do, as a chilled apéritif with savouries or pâté.

I tried it last time it was on offer. I didn't really like it
I've had this a few times, it's OK for the money. Not as good as the 60 or so €1.85 bottles of red I've just brought back from France though
Agree good point

I cook with it



I got some bottles last time. If you let it breath for a few hours its ok. Otherwise use it for spaghetti B or Pears in red wine.
85 score means barely drinkable - but fine if chilled/ in sangria/ for cooking

I find it drinkable. But yeah, Lamb leg or beef joint and red wine in the slow cooker for me... But I've done also done spag b. & lasagna with slow cooked stewing steak cubes in red wine too a few times... Lovely
I also bought a few bottles the last time it was 'reduced' to £2.99p Its bland and tasteless, not worth the money at all. As mentioned above open & let it breath does help a tad, but its best used for cooking !!!!!

I have a glass then Re cork and shake vigorously, saves waiting for hours
I told my partner about this and suggested we could both go there on Saturday morning and buy six bottles each.

Partner went to Lidl today and bought six bottles at £4.99 each.

If anyone can find a red wine with aromas of citrus and honey, let me know!
Sweet spot for decent wine is £10 a bottle. At £5 a bottle it's mostly tax, bottle and shipping and the producer gets a few pence. Haven't drunk this so can't really comment but as a general rule anything red from Bordeaux under £15 a bottle is pretty rough.

Having just had a couple of glasses with my duck dinner I can say this is, IMHO, a pretty rough Bordeaux and so won't be buying this again even at the reduced price. I've travelled the Gironde and love wines from that region my favourite being Saint-Émilion although of course I wasn't expecting this to be in that category.

A good Bordeaux Supérieur is my default red wine of choice but this is not one I will buying.
This Bordeaux Superieur wine was already sold at my local Lidl by the Saturday afternoon.
