I’m not sure I will use this same choice tactic again. I’m a sucker for bottles that have one any type of medal. That means it should be a great bottle, right? And the fact that it was the only bottle left of it’s kind amongst stocked shelves…good sign too, right? Uh, nope. But it grew on me, a bit…well, enough to drink some of it.
I would equate the first sip to that of biting into a lemon. While my wine tasting skills are incredibly limited, I know what I like and what puts me off right at the beginning. This first taste was not a good sign. Maybe it was the accompaniment that I bought as well…apparently red wine from Bergerac does not pair well with Tyrell’s Sour Cream and Jalapeno Chili popcorn. At least I know for next time. Perhaps we should be on the ball and at least try to drink it with dinner. Next time. While it wasn’t a splurge at 2,95 euros, we have had many better bottles for far less. Monoprix, you have failed me once again (and yes, I’m blaming the grocery store).
