Aldi Ch. de Champtelou Anjou Rouge 2014

In the Aldi French Wine Sale from 3rd September

Pale in colour with light cherry fruits and a slightly sweetish finish. Good everyday drinking at a budget price.

I had mine by itself before dinner and with an omelette.

This is the kind of inexpensive red wine that I normally like; a Loire Cabernet Franc that is light in alcohol and body with good refreshing acidity. I don’t even object to a herbaceous touch, something you used to find in Loire Cabernet Franc a lot. I know many people hate it. As it happened I was a little disappointed. I don’t know if they ran it through one of the pieces of modern machinery used to improve the balance of a wine, but I found the finish a little sweet. Still, at €7.99, it was a whole lot better than many of the confected cheapie wines you find in supermarkets.
