THE WINE LIST
Three worthy bottles every week – for three different budgets
€9.99, LIDL Largely quite lush Merlot, this 2015 Côtes de Bourg from Bordeaux’s right bank is a very decent savoury claret.
LOT XI CHARDONNAY
€13.99, ALDI Stunning blend of cool-climate Margaret River and riper Clare Valley Chardonnays, seasoned with new French oak. An ultra-modern Australian white wine.
LINGENFELDER RIESLING KABINETT TROCKEN
€16.95, O’BRIENS A fully dry white from Germany’s Pfalz region – citrus, mineral, crisp and impressively elegant. A natural with smoked salmon.
