Wino Wednesday – Fruitee Catalan

26 Oct

 

Wino Wednesday, our weekly sampling of wines under $5…  This week we bring you Fruitee Catalan, which is a Cotes du Rousillon.  We were at the Carrefour, which is basically Superstore in Canada.  I wandered over to the sale rack (yes they have sale racks for wine in France) but I was a little disappointed that their meaning of the word sale wasn’t the same as mine (I was hoping for a sub $1 wine, it’s been elusive so far).  So heading back to the main wine aisle, I was drawn to the bottle in the picture above.  Sort of a modern take on a wine bottle, different shape, clear bottle (pretty unusual for red), had a pink cork, and of course was $3.30.  It went well with our spaghetti tonight and overall it was one of our better purchases.
