This is nice, smells hearty and has a kind of rough, woody taste! Not bad value for £6 but would be disappointed if we’d paid full price. Goes well with spicy, flavoursome meals such as chilli. A few flavoursome levels but they don’t last too long in the mouth unlike better wines.

From the label…
This wine comes from the Bordeaux Region of South West France, the home of some of the world’s finest wines. Maison Calvet have been at the forefront of Bordeaux wine production since it was founded almost 200 years ago. The Prestige cuvee from Calvet is a specially selected blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and is carefully matured in our cellars. The wine is full and fruity with a long smooth aftertaste, making it a prefect choice with red meats, pizza and pasta as well as cheeses.
