René Barbier Chardonnay 2014

Member Review by BertieWoodenShoes:

I ordered 6 bottles of this wine through Smithfield Wine of Manchester to find that Smithfield did not have it in stock and confirmed that they were unable to procure any stock. So as they say, when we are out of stock - we give it away! From memory (now some 20 years back whilst living in Montreal, QC, Canada, this was an excellent wine, good presence, follow through and nice attractive legs!

Medium bodied red wine. The nose hints of black currant, plum, earthiness, and maybe a bit of leather? A bit sharp on the palette, with dark fruit flavor, and a bit of beef jerky flavor. A decent wine, but not a favorite.

I have commented on this wine in the past. I still think it is an awesome bargain (US$3.49 at Total Wines and at Cost Plus World Marketplace). An uncomplicated, refreshing wine that still stands up to a hearty meal. We had it with pizza, last night.

For $3.99 I was not expecting much. I found this and the Mediterranean White on clearance and decided that if nothing else I could use if for cooking. I was shocked to find that I adored the white and the red is more than drinkable. It's not terribly complex, but if you just want an inexpensive wine that you that you can buy in bulk for a party you won't be disappointed.

Strong fruity, lingering scent. Would be good with meat dishes in the winter. A yummy fruity aftertaste.

Cherry, fleshy red fruit flavors and a light, dilute mouthfeel are prefaced by earthy, resiny notes on the nose. Juicy cranberry and plum flavors, plus some wood, round out the short finish. Tasted twice.

This chewy red shows red fruit, earth and spice notes, with a rustic edge to the firm tannins. The finish is fresh and spicy. Drink now through 2008.

Light and refreshing as a sea breeze, this crisp, limey Spanish white is a steal at $6.

Bright ruby red. Moderately light-bodied. Moderately extracted, Mildly tannic. Black fruit flavors follow through on the palate...

René Barbier wines combine that sophisticated packaging with a sophisticated idea - that many people want to drink inexpensive wines which are just simple and good. no pretensions. No big flavor impact. And no big price. Even some of the most sophisticated sommeliers who tasted on our panels, when presented with Mediterranean White at $4.99 a bottle feel compelled to recommend it. It's clean, crisp and tasty.

Good clean white wine is hard to find at this price. Serve this well chilled at a summer cocktail party and the fresh grape flavors will lighten the mood.
