Understatement. Almost didnt buy it for that reason.
Value is definitely there, problem is sometimes you have to try 3 or 4 shitters to find one. Loire red is best value in France IMO, the nice part is the consistency is there so you don't fail very often.
Rhone Villages can sometimes be great value, but when you hit a shitter its as if you bought a bottle of pepper infused poo juice.
Value in general is outside of France.
