Judges at the IWSC wine awards are among some of the world’s most famous and influential wine experts. Here’s what they had to say about Aldi’s gold medal-winning tipple:  

“Displaying elegance in all areas, traditional red fruit nose with a meaty mid-palate as expected. Concentrated, earthy yet fresh and balanced harmony. Lengthy and refined with a pleasingly dry finish. Styled in traditional manner and styled well” 

Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the most famous wines of France. Grenache grapes are hand-picked from a selection of the best terroirs of this renowned region in the Southern Rhone Valley. The Vieille Étoile Châteauneuf du Pape is aged in large oak barrels making it a beautifully structured wine, with notes of tobacco, sweet spices and ripe red fruits. Enjoy with stews and venison.
