Two wines to try: a classic Chablis and a rich Bordeaux

These two wines are close to the €20 mark, but they’re worth it

 

Two more-pricier wines this week – but hey it’s Christmas. And they each come with a discount of about 10 per cent.

Chablis 2017, Domaine Pichon

Classic Chablis with crisp apple fruits and lemon zest, with subtle toasted almonds. Perfect with smoked salmon, prawns and other fishy starters. €18.99 (down from €20.99) from Eurospar.
