Well, here's something a bit out of the ordinary: a fizzy rosé wine from Bordeaux. Very pale pink, brut, 80% Merlot, 20% Cabinet Franc, it went very well with the chorizo and scallop skewers on rice that Anita prepared for Valentine's. Brand name Balard, winner of a gold in the Bordeaux competition in 2016.
Even better, it was under 6 euro a bottle, possibly even less than 5, we can't quite remember. Got it in Lidl, we think.
