La Terre Merlot 2003 Vin de Pays d'Oc

You get some quaffable wine for one and a half Euro here. Almost certainly this is helped by the very hot summer of 2003. This wine is darker, heavier and with a fuller body than is usual for this type and in my opinion, it is all the better for it.

Of course, it also has the fresh fruity appeal of a very young red wine, Perhaps it is a little astringent from some tastes but I like this a lot and I rate it as one of the best value for money wines that I have tried recently.

Wine rating: 6/10. Value rating: Very Good
