Reserve L'Oriflamme Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 2004
This is perhaps the worst purchase I have ever made - and the worst thing is that I tasted it before buying it. This is truly insipid rubbish that Carrefour had the audacity to be claiming to sell at €15, but put on a BOGOF offer - when tasted in store it was perhaps a little fruity and there was almost some sweetness to it - however on tasting at home it was an entirely different wine - to the extent that one wonders whether what I tasted was in fact the same or whether those Frenchies have pulled a fast one! That is something I'll never know - but for now - you have been warned!
