Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Courlandes 2015

Regular readers of my Guardian column will know that I’m always banging on about how there are cheaper alternatives to Chateauneuf-du-Pape but I know how much many of you love it and like to put it on the Christmas table.

And here’s a good one at a really keen price.

It may be young (it’s from the recent 2015 vintage) but it is a full 14.5% and really looks the part.

It’s normally £14 at Sainsbury’s but if you buy it (and 5 other bottles*) on the current 25% if you buy 6 promotion you can get it for £10.50. I doubt whether any supermarket will have one of comparable quality for a better price than that before Christmas.

What to drink it with? Well, The Bird obviously but it would also be good with roast beef, rich stews or a cheeseboard. If you’re a Chateauneuf fan snap it up!

* Sainsbury's very decent Taste the Difference Prosecco is on offer currently at £8 bringing it down to £6 on this deal which lasts until next Sunday November 13th. Ideal for a Christmas party.

Mike - Did you really write a comment at 2pm on Xmas day to complain about the wine? Give it a few years to age and then you will have a nicer wine. Also stop moaning and enjoy your xmas day in future

We bought a couple of bottles of this and it's rubbish, even at £10.50 it's worse than a Sainsbury's cheapy five pound bottle and much worse that their £5.50 Montpierre Réserve Fitou which is lovely.
I'm taking the Courlandes back for a refund.
