French wine

Delightful wine discovery in France on Thursday evening, we went out for a meal with the friends we were staying with and I chose a wild-card from Corbieres I had never tried this before and had never thought that region particularly memorable but this wine was a real cracker. Very young and grippy, the tannin's particularly mouth puckering but the raw fruit, dense texture and purple colour of the wine utterly compelling with the regional French cuisine. Will need to see if I can find some for sale, it was not an expensive wine, only around 18 Euro's in the restaurant, so I expect this would be between 8 and 10 pounds a bottle retail here in the UK. Just goes to show, occasionally you have speculate to accumulate!
