£4.99 from the Newington Green wine shop
We decided that french wine labels are pretty full on. So many words, but what do they mean? Hopefully as we go along we’ll start to make better sense of them.
Anyways our first red of the night had a strong scent, with one Ho describing it as “booming and tangy” and another describing it as “oaky, but not really” – basically a good all rounder. Noticed undertones of boysenberry and blueberry and a little bit of carpet on the nose. Not that the carpet wasn’t a bad thing, it gave the wine more body. It was the perfect balance of being flavourful and easy drinking.
We loved it, and Anne-Louise gets a gold star for finding this delectable little treasure.
Four out of five all round!
Would we buy this wine again? YES!!!
