This was a tough wine for me to review. It was not what I was hoping for. At first I chalked it up to a bad bottle, but all indications looked like I should have been smooth sailing. I’m a huge Chateauneuf fan (and a collector too), yet found this bottle to be a C grade or below of the region. At $26.99 I was hoping for a bargain gem, but found a wine that was hardly recognizable as the Chateauneufs I love so much.
I’d love to try another bottle to see if mine was off, but at $27, I’m going to have to move on. Maybe other readers can chime in with their experiences and let me know if I am the odd one out on this wine.
