Chateau Tour Negrier 2006
Right here we go, a Cru Bourgeois Medoc - jpoc must have something good to say about this one right?

Well, the best that I can say is this - if this wine had been just a little better, I would have considered it for cooking but certainly not for drinking.

As it was, I poured it down the sink. What was wrong? Well, without a lab analysis, I cannot be definititive but I would hazard a guess that the off tastes and slimy texture were the result of a bacterial infection.

Now the wine industry will tell you that wine is a living product and it is inevitable that there will on occasion be a problem that just could not have been avoided.

I`ll point out the wine is a food product and we do not let other food producers get away with such lapses.

Wine rating 2/10. Value: as festeringly rotten as this wine
