NO NO NO NO NO.....
Dear TB, NO NO NO NO
a real "connaisseur", a real wine appreciator, one that would like to endulge his friend, would never get any French stuff (its like their boats, sells a lot and the buyers don't know any better).
Get any, (and I mean any) Portuguese wine. That is it. If you want to really thank your friend.
I thank you, and the small viticulture of my Country greatly appreciates.
We have Red Wine, white Wine (Vino branco) and Green (yers yes) green wine.
DAO, PERIQUIRTA, REGUENGOS,
just don't get the ROSE, its crap. Invented to keep the germans away.
By the way, I am not joking. Ask anyone here that has had wine from Portugal, the land of PORT!!!
