There isn’t a good story to go along with this week’s wine. It was just a random and tasty bottle of red, one of our cheaper choices thus far (although you can go for less than a euro if you are brave enough). We ventured quite far south into the 13th to find the Geant Casino, a new hypermarche in a fairly odd shopping mall that had a fish-only pet store and beside is a fishmonger…hmmmmm.
Wine: Corbieres (Red)
Where’d we buy it: Geant Casino (hypermarche)
How much did it cost: $2.56
Why did we pick it: The fleur de lis embossed on the bottle, D said you can’t go wrong with embossed bottles…
Was it good: Not too shabby, D put it as no. 2 for him so far. I didn’t imbibe too much this go around but I thought it was pretty good. The selection was incredibly overwhelming at the Casino – think the aisles at your local Loblaws/Superstore – ya, that many bottles…of just red!
