Viva la France!


New Zealand introduced us to a very dramatic edition of SB, but other places in the world produce this wine in a more mild-manner style. Such as the Gascony region in the southwest of France. This new arrival at the LCBO offers wonderful summer refreshment with just enough citrus and savoury flavour to add interest. Damn good house wine.

  • Billy’s bang on with this one. Although the Duchess (who, admittedly, is not much of a wine drinker) found it a bit tart, it was the best bottle I’ve had in a long time. Although Billy describes it as summer refreshment, I’m drinking it on a cold winter’s night and enjoying it every bit as much as a hot August night (sans Neil Diamond).
