Wine 124

I think I am done with French wine

Chateau Pesquie 2009, 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache.
Acid burning my tongue some fruits in background.
Could be it has really aggressive tannins and needs another 5 to 10 years in the bottle.
Never had my tongue burning like that before.
In any case I don't think it was worth $20.
I don't know much about French wines other than they have Bordeaux, CDR, CDP
The names baffle me and have no meaning.
Rather than decrypting all this I am sticking with California wines were I can visit the wineries, know what I am drinking, and pay an appropriate price.
