There’s a lot out there. Especially in your go-to-emergency grocers. Four things I look for when buying wine:
- Year—the older the better, applies to red wine
- Reign—full bodied wines such go with Bordeaux, Cotes de Rhone and Burdagny (Bourgogne). Lighter wines try Beaujolais or Brouilley
- Price tag—You can get an exceptional bottle of wine for under 20 euros. And really, you shouldn’t pay for 18 euros (Champagne is the exception) —blends will be lower cost
- How pretty the label is—ok, not that important…but it’s the tie breaker!
