The new Lidl wines, part of the retailer’s Autumn collection, are available in stores from 29th September, following the familiar format of ‘while stocks last’.

The spotlight is unapologetically on France, featuring 42 French wines covering the entire country. Each has passed a tasting panel of three Masters of Wine to earn a place in the collection.

Decanter’s International Tastings Director, Christelle Guibert, attended a preview tasting and was impressed with the value on offer.

Below we have listed five of Christelle’s top picks to buy this Autumn.
