Budget bottles

Tonight’s I’m trying The Society’s French Full Red, a house wine from the Wine Society. I hoped to discover that the Society’s own wines at budget level represent a marvellous bargain. They spend a lot of time telling me that their own wines represent marvellous bargains. I have been disappointed. It may only have cost a fiver, but it tastes like it cost £4 and wasn’t a particular bargain then either. Proof that it’s worth spending a couple of quid extra.

On which subject, I was out last night merrily spending £7.50 on a single cocktail, and marvelling at the totally different head-budget that operates when you’re out. Anyway, rubbish wine. Not wrong, not broken, not faulty, just not very good.
