Wines of the Month
Specially Selected Roussanne Pays d’Oc (and 2 other Aldi bargains)
Roussanne may not be on your radar but it should be. It’s one of the white wine varieties you find in the Rhône and Languedoc - often in a blend - and has a gorgeous peachy character that makes it particularly delicious with roast chicken.
This amazingly well-priced example comes from Aldi where it’s selling for just £6.99 which must be one of the wine bargains of the year. It’s fresh, peachy and delicious with just a touch of citrus - just mouthwateringly good.
There are two other new French wines from Aldi you might want to snap up - also made by the hugely clever Jean-Claude Mas a winemaker who consistently manages to deliver interesting wines at an affordable price.
A Limoux chardonnay which you’ll love if you’re into big rich chardonnays - the oak isn’t overdone though - and a full-bodied red called Marselan which is a cross between cabernet sauvignon and grenache. It’s rich, dark and plummy and should appeal if you’re into malbec. Think hearty casseroles and pies - and pheasant when it comes into season.
Both are also £6.99 so load up for autumn.
I was sent these wines to try as press samples.
