This Morrisons wine costing just £8 a bottle has Sexy Clubwear been named among best in the world
Morrisons is celebrating this week Sexy Clubwear – after one of its white wines was named among the best in the world.
The bottle, on sale in Coventry supermarkets Wholesale Babydoll Lingerie for a staggeringly low £8, is ‘The Best White Burgundy’.
The tipple scooped a silver medal in the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards beating much more expensive wines, according to the Mirror.
Château de Meursault 1er Cru Charmes-Dessus, which costs £49.50, only managed a bronze.
The Burgundy region is home to some of the world’s finest – and most expensive – wines.

“Burgundy has become the most sought after and expensive region in the world,” said Morrisons senior wine Manager Clive Donaldson.
“It is difficult for us to source decent Burgundy at a sensible price.
“However by working closely with wine producers and blending most of our own-label wines ourselves we manage to sell amazing wines at affordable prices.”
The chain also picked up a gold medal for a £6 bottle of The Best Dry sherry, alongside Waitrose and Marks and Spencer – the only supermarkets to be awarded the top prize.
An £8.50 bottle of Marks & Spencer’s, Coteaux Varois-en-Provence rose impressed the judges, as well as Waitrose’s, Lustau Fino del Puerto Don Luis fino priced £9.99.
219 expert judges, including 65 Masters of Wine and 20 Master Sommeliers, tested more than 17,200 entries in the awards.
