This is second review of four bottles of French red purchased as part of the Superquinn French wine sale last Saturday and now being drunk since my face has calmed down.
Name: Chateau Haut LaGrange
Superquinn says "blackcurrant fruit flavours and is the favourite red wine of our Wine Specialist in Superquinn Swords, Joe Rock"
Price: €12 (reduced from €24.99)
Notes: Very nearly a great bargain. This wine has all the classic Bordeaux flavours but unfortunalely it also has that bitterness often associated with more inexpensive Bordeaux wines. If you are a big fan of this style, akin to a lot of Bordeaux Superieurs, then you won't go too far wrong with this. As before, full price (€24.99) would be way too much to pay for this, but your mileage may vary.
