Blaumeister Liebfraumilch review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips


Tesco’s Blaumeister brand Liebfraumilch is Price Matched to the Aldi version at £3.79. So both are cheap, but are they great value? This German slightly sweet white wine made fame with the Blue Nun name in the 1950s as the wine that “goes everywhere” and matches any food, mood or time and place. Since reaching a peak in the 1980s, Liebfraumilch has lost many customers but those that remain are loyal to the candy-sweet apple and pear flavours that are a pleasant sip at just 9.5% alcohol. The slight aspirin after-taste is there though, as with some other cheap wines and also zero-alcohol wines. Nice enough but there are better options at under £4 in the wine aisle (see Tesco’s £3.99 Lateral Chilean wines and Asda’s Nice Drop budget wine range which start at £3.75 a bottle).
