External Reviews for René Barbier
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.
Ripe plum and tobacco aromas are generous, but the wine turns lighter on the palate, with scratchy tannins and modest cherry and herb flavors. A light, almost citrusy acidity keeps it fresh. Drink now.
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.
Bright ruby red. Moderately light-bodied. Moderately extracted, Mildly tannic. Black fruit flavors follow through on the palate...
Light and refreshing as a sea breeze, this crisp, limey Spanish white is a steal at $6.
