This wine proves the fact that not all French wines are good. Not good?
Well, the first sips were eye opening. There is a harsh acidic attack on the palate. Some munchies helped but not completely. The assault continued and the toung got a bit used to the taste – but not completely.
This reminded me of some wines I was served many years ago at various wedings. These were harsh wines but as they were free and on the table, one drank them. And then searched for more.
There is better French wine. Perhaps not in Canada at this price point, but one can get a fairly decent bottle of French plonk in downtown Paris for two or three Euros.
This is not one of them.
The signs should have been obvious – there is no date of production and there is no indication of which grape was used.
