..and is actually their 6 for 4 deal on their own. Nice. Deutz also on 6 for 4 it seems.
Also spotted this and a case snaffled to reserves earlier. We recently quickly dispatched a six pack that had been in reserves for 18 months (lot L19xxxx) which was delicious, I feel it is back on good form
Oliver, I’d split a case if you fancied 3? One of us could buy, add to reserves, and ask Member Services to transfer 3?Also spotted this and a case snaffled to reserves earlier.

Now trying to decide what to do for festive bubbles… thinking magnums but uncorked sold out of LR Brut this morning. Tempted by TWS own mags (apparently 2008 base rather than 2015 in half-magnum) but they are packed in cases of six to get the discounted price… drat…
For me it's an investment opportunity - to save me buying in the future. I think I now have enough Champagne to last me until about 2025, so I should slow down now. I should definitely dispose of some surplus reds, though.If I were to buy a case of the TWS champagne it would fall firmly into the category of wine bought because it was cheap, not because I need it! On that basis I'm trying to resist. Mind you, I probably didn't need the Gossett either...
Who's the producer of the Chablis? Chablis Premier Cru Les Muses? Is that a real name or like a M&S "Lochmuir salmon"? Definitely something a bit fish there! ;-)A new Lidl wine tour next week. Starts on the Monday (22nd) rather than Thursday for some reason. Return of some old favourites, Salneval Albarino, Canadian Icewine and some whites, dry and sweet, from Tokaj. The Chablis PC at £16 looks interesting as does the 10 year old tawny port for £12. Not really my scene but the expensive (for Lidl) Champagnes might tick a few boxes. For me though the Dao reserva and a couple of the full bodied Spanish reds £7.50-10 are more likely purchases. I seem to recall the last vintage of the Dao was beautiful. Plus, of course, I will be hunting through the bargain bin.
Next weekend 26-28 they are reducing their NZ PN to £5. This wine has shown a lot of variation in the past, depending on the vintage, and I don't know what they will have on offer, but when good it is great VFM.
I wonder has Tom been sent any of the wine tour wines to taste?
I can't see a producer listed in the magazine and knowing Lidl they will probably do all they can to keep it under wraps. As for Les Muses I had assumed it was a PC climat but have to admit it's a new one on me.Who's the producer of the Chablis? Chablis Premier Cru Les Muses?

Hmmm indeed!Hmmm, a Magnum or 2 of TWS gratien own label has just appeared - disgorged in june this year.
well disgorged in 2021 would be very unlikely to be 08 base, but I suppose you never know. lot 21235099, posted in the hopes that someone from TWS is lurking...
