He's in the birdbath...

It was a busy day at the end of a busy week, and YHB had intended to hit O'Briens in the Beacon for some more Clos du Val goodness but after an afternoon of various misunderstandings, evasions and outright lies I only had time to run around Tesco to pick up the dinner and whatever vino I could grab on the fly.

Luckily the Finest Valpolicella Ripasso was back in stock so I picked up a couple of them along with the two French wines at left, both of which are new to me.

On the left is a Promenade Des Papes Plan de Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2007 (phew), allegedly half price at €7-99. If it is a €15-99 wine then it's worth a punt at this price.

On the right is a Paradise Hill Minervois 2006 - €9-95, from reading the label this appears to be a wine aiming for the younger fruitier end of the market. Hmmmmm.

Tomorrow promises to be a very alcoholic day, wine tasting for Lil Sis's wedding at 11-30, meeting brother from another city, hopefully, for pints watching the match and then Baan Thai and lots of wine with June.
