Wine Tasting – November


This month was our penultimate on the theme for the year of wine styles of Western Europe and featured red wines from the southern end of the Rhone river.  We conclude next month with wines from the northern end of the Rhone – a rather different style.  Naomi brought us four very fruity wines from Sainsbury’s, working up from the basic “Cotes du Rhone” through Vinsobres and Gigondas to Chateauneuf-du-Pape.  Unusually, the group rated the wines in order of price, and the most favoured was the £15 2015 “Taste the Difference” Chateauneuf-du-Pape.  Many thanks for Michael D for hosting this month.
