Review of "Marks & Spencer Vin De Pays Du Gers"
I have just returned home from a marathon drinking session/party at a friends house and boy am I pissed.Please excuse me for any spelling mistakes or any suggestion of drifting away from my usual writing style. After all I am under the influence of alcohol.
As many of you may be aware my favourite drink is Bacardi & Coke and naturally that is what I was consuming in the majority for most of the night. Unfortunately for me especially the bloody Bacardi bottle was fully consumed and I must say that I was the main culprit, drinking at least two thirds of the bottle.So there I was with the party still bubbling and in full swing and without my favourite drink. So using whatever senses I still had operating at that time I decided to go home (three houses down the road) and get my bottle of white wine that I had purchased from Marks & Spencers the day before.
The wine in question wss the Vin de Pays du Gers and the culprit for my purchasing this wine was none other than our "In-House Wine Connoisseur" Miss Blurbubble.A bit about the wine before I start bubbling (intended mention) about the wine itselft.
Unforunately the wine in question is absolutely horrible. It was lucky that I was already "happy" after my lavish consumption of Bacardi & Coke otherwise the wordings that I would have used might have been extremely more critical.This wine is basically a Table Wine that oozes the words "Economy". The taste is extremely harsh and reeks of acidity and is basically one of the worst wines that I have tasted. It may possibly be because I had consumed it after drinking other beverages but I doubt that this could have hampered my judgement since this wine doesn't even come close to something that I might consider enjoying.
It's available in the standard 75cl. bottles and has a darkish yellow appearance. It is claimed to be a bubbly wine that possesses character and zest. Unfortunately this is a total understatement in my view.At £4.50 a bottle some may consider it a good bargain but I certainly do not. Look at the Blossoms Chardonnay, which goes at a similar price at Tesco and you will see the total opposite in all respects.
If your looking to purchase a White Wine please stay away from the Marks & Spencers Vin de Pays du Gers. I am absolutely sure you will thank me for this bit of advice.PS. Blurbubble - Obviously our tastes are a bit different. Love to have a drinking session with you one day. Wouldn't that be fun - LOL
