There’s nothing better than being sent a bottle of wine, other than being sent 4 bottles of wine that is! Thanks to Aldi’s PR company, that’s exactly what I was sent; two bottles of red and two of white to review.
The first to be opened was the Bordeaux Supérieur 2011 at £4.99 a bottle. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the Bordeaux region of France. Hubby is the red wine drinker in the house and found this to be both richly fruity and well rounded; a perfect accompaniment to a roast beef dinner, perhaps. Though it’s equally enjoyable after a long day at work. The tasting notes detail this wine as having the aroma of raspberry & blackberry with spicy notes and a tannin structure.
