I have never bought this wine on principle: It states the varietals in English on the front of the French label (!). Plus, and this is just my quirk, a label that reads Chateau Canada is sort of like a Ye Olde pub in Victoria, BC, with faux wainscoting and Molson Canadian on tap. Worse, they have, in English, an explanation of why it’s called Chateau Canada. On the front of the bottle! However…
However, AG gave it a great little review and the price point is right in my sweet spot and I only have this to say: Is there any better bottle of French red on the liquor store shelves in this city at this price? I think not. Astonishingly appealing value red. Luscious to the last drop. A mostly Merlot blend that is a must buy.
Price: $18 at BCL before taxes.
Market Liquidity: Ignore the window dressing.
