Nice and linear with good grip - '09 I think will go the distance but it is drinking very well now.

Edit: 2/3 bottle and its found some legs. Probably needed a decant but I feel stupid doing that to a 10$ wine. Pretty good actually.

I've had great luck with Fontsainte Corbieres from Kermit Lynch. More than $10 but not much more and utterly reliable.

You basically just cost me a paycheque. Thanks.

lol - find a friend and split a case. This is the page (http://www.rooftopcellars.com/petits-chateaux.php) you want to keep bookmarked and get on their mailing list as things sell out fast. Some great deals on incoming 93/94/95/96 bdx at $30/bottle and available in cases of 6. I have some of that '98 Vieux Cassan at $28/bottle and its great. Uncomplicated but definitely in a sweet spot.

Lovely wine- opened a bit soft but broadened considerably within 20 minutes. No need to decant. Powerful and lingering right down the middle of the palate. Drinking well but easily ten years left.

I got a few magnums of the 2010 during the recent sale. Haven't tried one yet. Good to hear.

The Fonsainte rose is pretty much our house wine in the summer.

Actually some truth there. Every woman that I've ever dated who was white wine only turned out to be super lame, dithering and uptight.

Waste of money.

Over ripened sappy shit. Do not buy.

Should have realized there was something wrong when it said "red wine from the south of france" on the label.

Just received as a gift. Thoughts? When to drink (no Manton)?

No AOC? That's usually a pretty ominous sign.

Corbieres is an AOC. It wouldn't have been legal for the producer to put Corbieres on the label if the wine didn't qualify for AOC Corbieres.

While this is true there are excellent non-AOC wines as there are pretty bad AOC wines. AOC doesn't always indicate quality.
