Any good value Tesco/Sainsburys purchases that you'd recommend? Or Booths/Waitrose/Morrisons, where I can go in a couple of weeks.
I'm working on doing my Christmas wine order and trying to work out if there's some stuff I should get at the supermarket. I like the Sainsburys taste the difference Chilean Merlot and their Douro - Tesco also have a Douro that I think I've had before and liked. There's 25% off when you buy 6 bottles in Tesco at the mo and I think the same in Sainsburys next week.
I like Marlborough Sauvignons and bigger reds I think (recentish convert to red so not too sure yet!)
I really don't like supermarket wines. I never seem to choose the right ones. I usually go to Majestic and tell them exactly what I'm looking for and they make up a box for me. I can't remember if there's a minimum amount at majestic but it's def best to buy six if you want a discount. They have always given me great wine and I never spend more than £7 a bottle.
Have also had good success at Aldi for Prosecco at xmas.
I really like Tesco's finest Malbec at £7.50 a bottle (and, as you say, 25% off 6 bottles) which I think works out at £33.75. I'm not a great lover of white wine but Tesco's Picpoul de Pinet (also in the 'Finest' range) is lovely at a similar price to the Malbec.
yy to the Tesco Argentinian Malbec and the Aldi Claire valley riesling M&S do a good Fleurie although I wouldn't describe it as big or full bodied. Sainsbury's sell Yalumba Viognier which is really nice and fruity.
