If you love a bargain as much as you love a glass of rosé then you won’t want to miss this!
Aldi are selling magnums of French rose, Le Chat Noir Rosé, for less than $25.
Described by Aldi as ‘delicate and dry’, the French tipple is from the Gers and Aude Valley regions of southern France and boasts ‘aromas of rose petals, strawberries, light red berries and a hint of spice.’
That’s all well and good but let’s admit, another great quality of this wine is its sheer volume. Le Chat Noir Rosé comes by the magnum – a wine bottle with twice the capacity of a regular bottle. That amounts to a litre-and-a-half of vino.
Add some slippers, strawberries, and Netflix and you’re looking at the best night in ever!
Rosé is made in a similar way to red wine. The crucial difference is that instead of leaving the dark grape skins to ferment with the juice, they’re removed after around twenty-two hours. This leaves the wine tinted a soft pink, and with a generally more delicate flavour than red varieties.
Amazingly, it is illegal in most of France to blend white and red wine together to create a rosé.
Aldi’s Le Chat Noir Rosé went on sale on Wednesday 23rd, and were advertised as one of Aldi Specials Buys which means once it’s gone, it’s gone.
So if you’ll excuse me I have some enormous bottles of pink wine to go buy.
