LIDL is a German supermarket chain that is currently among the best in the world. It stands out above all for its low prices, sometimes for products that are normally more expensive, such as wine. For less than 5 euros, you can buy excellent wines to show off at a dinner with family or friends. It seems unbelievable, but read on and you will see that it is absolutely true.
Excellent and inexpensive wines in this shopping center
LIDL offers a selection of wines of very good quality and, what is better, at a more than affordable price. Here are some of them, including one that stands above the rest.
Coto de Ibedo (DO Ribeiro)
This white wine DO Ribeiro vintage 2020 is qualified by experienced critics as one of the best in Spain. Its youth can be easily appreciated, as it presents a pale yellow color with greenish reflections. It is a pleasant and very balanced wine: the fruity notes of the three types of grapes used in its production and the typical acidity of the DO company’s products stand out. The bottle costs only 3,99 euros.
Tramuz (DO Ribera del Duero)
For only 4.99 euros, you can enjoy a delicious red wine with three months of barrel aging. It is deep red in color with purple highlights. In short, it is a round and very fruity wine. Pairing this wine with spoon dishes is highly recommended.
Gamellón joven 2020 (PDO Jumilla)
Another red wine, but this time cheaper: only 2,49 euros. The most remarkable feature of this wine is its freshness and fruity aroma, obtained from the Monastrell and Syrah grapes used in its production. It is ideal to accompany pasta and rice dishes.
La Bien Pintá (DO Rueda)
It costs €3.99, so it’s a real bargain. It is a really good white wine, with a bright yellowish color and medium aromatic intensity. It has hints of tropical fruit, aromatic herbs… making it a rather exotic wine. It is perfect to accompany different dishes: red meats, pasta, rice dishes, pâté, seafood, fish…
Fincas del Lebrel 2020 (DOCa Rioja)
It is a Tempranillo with a powerful cherry red color. Above all, you will enjoy its freshness and intense flavor. It is worth only 3.49 euros, which makes it a bargain that is not easy to find.
Endorsed by a great sommelier
For those who don’t know, a sommelier is the person in charge of wine service in luxury restaurants and other similar establishments. In addition, it tastes the new wines offered at the venue in question to decide whether they are valid or not. One of the most prestigious in Spain, Jon Andoni Rementeria, who is the 2018 Spanish Sommelier Champion (among other awards), assures that, for less than 5 euros, we can buy great wines at LIDL.
Rementeria is a more than authoritative voice in the wine world, as he has tasted and continues to taste wines of excellent quality that are not sold at modest prices. So, if you had any lingering doubts about whether or not these amazing deals were worth it, they’ve certainly cleared out of your head, if only a little bit.
