So what do you buy for a crowd? Say you have $15.00 and no more for a decent bottle and are stuck in the sea of mediocrity of BevMo or your local mega corporate wine establishment...what do you do?
When my neighbor decided to throw a party for 40, he and I sat down and tasted a few things and he ended up picking up a couple of cases of my favorite: (when he called, I said try to find some '03 CDRhones...)
Domaine Grand Veneur
Cotes du Rhone Village 2003
Alain Jaume & Fils $13.99
This was big, jammy, and yummy with lots of great fresh grenache flavors. Ready to drink and a steal at $13.99.
I decided however to start a new page devoted to the hunt for bargains...a scrapbook of things I read in the paper, things in W&S, etc. I'll keep it up by deleting the plonk and adding the discoveries as I go along.
