Well if C can do one with her scarf, I’ll use my bowtie… This week’s wine is courtesy of O + G, whom after trying some dreaded what I might write about it. I have to say that the review below is an honest one, and not influenced by my parents fear….
Wine: Chateau Romefort
Where’d we buy it: Carrefour, I think, but I wasn’t there so they could have got it just about anywhere…
How much did it cost: $3.64, more than I’m accustomed to paying, but still within the $5 limit.
Why did we pick it: O+G bought it, and I have no idea what their criteria is. It certainly doesn’t go by our standard cool label/embossed bottle/won an award selection criteria.
Was it good: To be brief, no. To be un-brief, the burn it left on my throat could only be replicated by the finest variety of draino… It had a very alcoholish taste reminiscent of rubbing alcohol, which could be related to the burning sensation… Definitely one to avoid, and proof that you don’t always get what you pay for.
