Sherry

2 Replies

Has anybody found a supermarket that sells Sherry ( Jerez Dulce or Seco) in the Beziers/Pezenas area? Yes, we do know we can easily get it over the border in Spain but why is there an embargo on French supermarkets selling it?St John

I don't think that there is an embargo, it's just that you can get similar wines from France and particularly from this region. We enjoy the Rivesaltes ambré which is similar to a sweet sherry and goes rather well with mince pies. For a dry sherry we have found Tio Pepe in some supermarkets.


Otherwise Vin Malin are selling a 50cl bottle of Alvear Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 here:

Thanks George. Can you re-call in which supermarket that you saw Tio Pepe? Or has anybody else seen similar sherry for sale in Languedoc?
