    Muscadet with my seared tuna starter and Moules Marinière. Pushed the boat out for that - seven and a half quid, twice the price of the mussels! :eek: :LOL:

    Makaraka, a sauvignon blanc from Aldi, £4.99. Really quite nice.

    Not bad with our roast lamb but at 14.5%, a bit stronger than we are used to. :whistle:

    A thumper indeed, heavy red for roast lamb, perfect for cutting through the "fatty" meat. Try a bottle of president XV, that's blows your brains out, it's nice as well. The XV gives a clue to it's ABV.

    So as not to upset @Brigadier any further, I've gone down, yes down, from my usual fiver a bottle. £4.50 from Sainsbury’s to go with my Sea Bass, roast Mediterranean vegetables and sautéed potatoes. Living the life!

    Presumably preceded by a cheeky bottle of fizz, NV of course, to go with the caviar or perhaps foie gras entreés.
