Year: N/A
France
1000ml
11% ABV
$9.45 (LCBO)

I had a bit of an adventure with this wine.
The first bottle I bought froze.
It was cold that evening and we left it outside or a tad too long. There were four of us playing Settlers of Catan at a cottage and after sampling it a bit we switched to other wine.
The wine was not bad but we felt that it was not at its prime after being frozen.
Opening a chilled, not frozen, bottle of this wine I was perplexed to find that I rather preferred the post frozen variant of the wine. My wife concurred.
The wine is not bad but it is sour and acidic. It is a little bit nasty and not really pleasant to drink.
It is quite cheap as it is under ten bucks for a full litre of this hootch.
You can better white wine for the same price as this, and that is what I would recommend.
