I noticed today, the store had French wine for $16 down from $18 but I don't want to waste my money on the cheapest wine without any idea. I need to work out what to look for? Trial & Error? Haha
As a basic rule you should stay away from the wines with a packaging made for export: Label with French flag, Eiffel Tower or a frog
French wine labels are very classic and 'serious'. It also needs to be cork. Screw cap is for cheap wines.
Absolutely not a guarantee of quality. There is plenty of swill being made there that has the appellation on the label.Wines always display their appellation on the label and that is what you look for as the strict appellation rules make it a guarantee of quality.
Again, not quite correct. Taking Burgundy for example, just because the wine isn't village or vineyard level doesn't make it rubbish. Conversely there are plenty of Bourgogne that are better than village level wines.'Bordeaux' and 'Bourgogne' (don't even talk to me about 'Burgundy') are not proper appellation but general one for wines that didn't make it into their sub-region appellation.
So for Bordeaux for example you will look for a 'St Emilion', a 'Margaux' or a 'Haut Médoc' without any mention of 'Bordeaux' on the bottle.
That is just some basic about reading a label when you have no ideas. Not true in every cases but could help you avoiding the cough wines made for the poms

I saw the Cellar price, I just didn't know if it was any good! Ohwell, can't buy everything. My bank account is hurting, and it feels like every week there's endless deals!Same here - I was shamed by my more knowledgeable wine loving friends for buying it.
Any of these Under Wraps got potential? I'll try work out what a few are later this afternoon.15% ShopBack again until tomorrow on these wines:

I confused Greenock Creek Estate with Greenock Estate that is Chinese owned and making wines for export to Asia. Trap for young players. Red flags should have been up given this Spanish Italian blend made by Chinese owned winery in Barossa....I saw the Cellar price, I just didn't know if it was any good!
