So I went easy on the wine in Superquinn for this year's French Wine Sale. I decided not to buy anything I'd bought before, for reasons of economy and efficiency. There are lots of nice wines I've bought before in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
I decided to be lazy and bought a couple of reds as recommended by Kevin Ecock and they are as follows...
Domaine Cristia Cotes Du Rhone 2012 - €10
I've had a couple of wines form Domaine Cristia and they've been pretty decent, so I'm giving this one a try.
*Update - drinking this as we speak and it's not bad, fruity but drinkable with a decent finish. Not sure I'd but it again, though.
Puy de Dome Auvergne Pinot Noir 2011 - €10
It's hard to get good Pinot at a reasonable price so I'm hoping this is as nice as in the review.
*Update - this was delicious. Some nice soft red fruits, elegant and light and definitely drinkable with or without food. I think I'll get some more of this.
