The Oddbins Take

Sports fans worldwide are familiar with the Gallic cockerel, but few know its significance. Nowadays, this national symbol suggests pride and pizazz; but it's origins stem from an act of defiance. Roman invaders had besieged a small community of chicken farmers in the Loire. The farmers held out bravely, repelling the Romans with every stick, stone, shoe, and over-cooked loaf they had. Until there was nothing left to hurl.


In desperation they turned to their chickens. Plump and properly reared as they were, it was clear their impact would be minor. Therefore, confident the flames would cause only superficial harm before being doused by the passage through the air, they set the chickens afire. And so it was. The Romans found themselves bombarded with a barrage of smouldering foul. The Poulet Fumer - 'Smokey Chicken' - of Loire legend. Oh.. hang on. Pouilly... ah.

    Classic French Duo - Wine Gift Set

    As low as: £32.75

    At Oddbins we love unusual parcels, sourced from the furthest flung frontiers of the wine world. In fact, you may have noticed that 'odd' features in our name - nominative determinism at its finest! However, sometimes only classic wines will do; such as buying a gift for your father-in-law who unironically wears tweed and after 12 years of marriage to his child still requires you call him 'sir'. It is times such as this you want some wine with a well-known appeal and a quality level. Wines like this duo of French Classics that might just prompt your father-in-law to allow you to drop the 'sir' and permit you to call him 'Mr. Bennet.'
