"I really like this wine. First tasted as part of a mixed rose case and have now bought a case. Yes, it does have a touch of paint stripper in it, but this has often been a positive description by wine writers. It is also full and long. So what if the colour is a bit garish? - it doesn't affect the taste."
"Mr Chivers' review had us in stitches. We need more reviews like that - 'real-time', describing exactly what it is like to encounter wines that are either intrinsically bad or bad because in some way faulty, and this when one is presumably fairly desperate for a decent drink."
"Colour: vibrant. I hate it, its going to be awful I just know. Nose: smells of fruity chewing gum. Its getting worse. Taste: truly awful, now tastes like fruity chweing gum. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Who tastes and selects this? Serious cock up here."
"I agree with Mr William Davies. Buyers please retaste."
"I enjoyed the 2012 wine by Pere Besinet et fils. It was dry but not bone dry and smooth . Very good value for a vin de table but unfair to compare with more expnsive Vin de Provence [Houchard]."
"Purchased as part of a mixed case, good value everyday quaffer. Excellent with a chicken salad, highly recommended!"
"Not as good this year to be honest. Gave me a migraine!"
"This is not pretentious and for the price is a good value, easily drinkable quaff. Perhaps the colour is too garish and there is an unnatural but neverthelsss acceptable sweetness to the taste. Its very popular - so we keep running out."
"This is a pretty poor effort. Most of the 'Society Range' makes for decent budget drinking, however, this wine has an unattractive fake rose petal aspect, with some plantain adding to the saccharineness on the finish. It possesses an awkward structure and badly needs some acidity to sharpen things up. Bloated and sickly, this is to be avoided at any price."
