Thread: The wine corner

    Found this delicious rosÚ from France's Languedoc (80% Cinsault and 20% Syrah). With discount, cost me under $7, which is a steal for a wine of this quality.

    Under $7??? Was that you under the bridge? I couldn't see the bottle through the paper bag.

    I'm laughing, but not sure why. Please explain.

    No offense taken. Just making sure of your post.

    With a 20% discount, the final cost was $6.99/bottle. I'm telling you, it's a very nice sipping wine on a hot day. Quality defies it's price.

    What do you do to get a 20% discount? Frequent buyer club? Buy 2 cases at a time? Senior citizen discount? What? Drinkers like me need to know!

    In my wine shop, you get the discount after buying 50 bottles. Then it's 10% off individual bottles and 20% off case(s).

    Recently, I happened to be at a ShopRite in New Jersey (adjacent liquor store affiliated with the supermarket). They gave me 20% off a case just for asking.

    A question for all you wine connoisseurs . . .

    The largest grocery store in Texas has this wine on sale for $2.98 a bottle. I can't believe the price, but I read somewhere that Trader Joe's also sells a very cheap wine.
    Have you ever heard of Cul-de-Sac?
    If so, is it decent or nasty rotgut?

    Was the cost too prohibitive to find out for yourself? Orange Juice and Milk cost more.

    She spent all her available cash on Mums. I don't know if you were aware of the price increase in Mums this year. Freakin' price gougers!

    Have not heard of Cul De Sac but I've tried a few of those three or four dollar wines - they're often not worse that many eight or nine dollar wines. Still, I don't want them. Best bang for your buck wines are from Argentina or Chile. I'd rather get a six dollar bottle from one of those countries. Especially Chile.

    trader Joes used to have Two Buck Chuck. I think, at least. And it was $2. Surprise.

    Timmy's right - its no worse than some $8 bottles. But it's definately not a top tier wine.

    I like how they call it Cul-de-Sac, make it sound fancy. It's the French word for Dead End.

    As well as France's Languedoc-Roussillon Region.

    Borg, I had no idea there was Sancerre rose. Sancerre white wine is high on my list, but I rarely drink it because of the $$$. This was $27, but wife had a $20 gift certificate so I jumped all over it. When I opened it, the typical smell of strawberry and even bubble gum. That went away though, and it became an overpowering mineral wine, which I love. Seriously, there is so much mineral in this you'd think it sat on the bottom of a rusty well. I love it.

    This guy personally squarshes each and every grape of Cul-de-Sac with his oozing, gout festered, bare feet.



    He done put the sewer... in wine connoisseur.

    Me either, Timmy. I enjoy minerally wine, too.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Will see if my wine shop carries any Sancerre rosÚ.
