Wanted: Light Red Wine

fountainfiend | Jun 20, 2014 08:39 AM

A month or so ago my wife and I had the fortune to be served a very light chilled red wine along with one of our courses at a restaurant. Of course, we neglected to write down the exact name, varietal, or region that it was from, however the somm described it as a 'crusher' wine, drank in the summer months in France and chilled down. He said it was a traditional way to drink it.

We are planning on a lot of picnics this summer and would really like something similar to fit the bill. I am not even sure where to start looking for this, and hoping some of you who know way more about wine than we do might be able to help out. Hoping for something <20 a bottle. Any help is appreciated!
