A Pleasant Red From Waitrose.

Posted: September 8, 2010 in Drinks

I bought a bottle of Domain Combes from Waitrose on Saturday. It was £5.24 and to my mind worth every penny!

However, I have noticed over the past months that the prices are creeping up.  One of my favourites and gone from £7.99 a year ago to about £9.70 now.  In percentage terms, that’s quite a leap.

But back to the Domain Combes, it was very nice indeed.  Quite peppery, medium bodied, not too heavy and smelt lovely too.  The label on the back describes it as ‘rich’ ‘full-bodied’ and ’round’.  It certainly isn’t full-bodied, at least I don’t think so.  I don’t like full bodied wine.

The label also describes it as tasting of Blackberries and Plummy.  I didn’t pick up on that but I don’t think my palette is that educated, all I know is good from bad.

As always, here is a picture for you to lick.
