    I mentioned Lambrini in another thread; an interesting review by two common sewers not a million miles from here:

    Donkey piss of the month:
    Lambrini

    “Lambrini girls just wanna have fun.” Two truths there: this ‘wine’ is for (young) girls and they are well up for “fun” after 1500 mls of this ghastly,
    synthesised, undrinkable concoction.
    Firstly, it’s actually not a wine at all, but Perry (a cider made from pears), even there it’s a cheat made from concentrate rather than the old British fruit! Secondly, it’s sickly sweet and fizzy and more an AlcoPop (7.5% abv) than a real alcoholic drink.
    Lastly, Lambrini is verycheap (£5 for two 1.5 litres bottles at Tesco)

    “So what when it’s so awful!” we hear you cry, but as Pluggy calculates it still has its place for a cheap date
    ... (Wise words, after all why waste good money and wine on a floozy that just would not understand quality wine and more importantly one’s supreme knowledgeof it ? Ed.)"

    You can tell when you've got them there - they drop their chips.

    Feck! Don't know if I can face wine tonight. There's a half-full bottle of top chablis in the fridge from Saturday night.

    Wondering if it will go with beans on toast, which is about the only food I'm likely to be able to handle.

    You'd do well there, Crawford, as long as you don't speak - Weedgies are not greatly liked in East Lothian - even by the munters!!

    Of course it will - great white Burgundy goes with most things - you can always tip the beans in the bin!


    My pacing myself is not going so well either - just opened the Rioja and had to try it (as you do)
