11/12/2016 – Borgo Regio, Franciacorta Brut

(2016) It's an astonishingly low price for this pre-Christmas special parcel of Franciacorta in Lidl UK stores: Franciacorta is a super-premium sparkling wine region of northern Italy, the wines normally selling in the £20 - £30 range. Made by the traditional method, this all-Chardonnay wine was aged on the lees for 18 months and offers fresh, appetising aromas of pear and baked apple pie, leading onto a fresh and lemony palate, a touch of that creamy pastry character, but tight and zippy into a decent finish that is dry and savoury enough for food matching. Watch the video for tips on that and more information about the wine.
