René Junot

A simple meal calls for a simple wine, n'est-ce pas? So the wine pairing for this evening's potato gratin was a bottle of Rene Junot Dry Red Table Wine. It's that simple.

Unlike the other French reds I've tried this week, Rene Junot is not a newcomer to the wine section. While I didn't enjoy it as much as the Cote-du-Ventoux or the B&G, I drank my share with dinner. But even though the price is nice at $8.98 a bottle, I'm not sure I will choose it again.

If you've tried this Rene Junot, what did you think?
