Boozelog XX – Beausoleil Red

The middle-cost wine from Egyptian International Beverages. I’ve had Shahrazad (or however you want to transliterate it) before, their cheapest line of wines, which was pretty good (review forthcoming). Beausoleil red is merlot-cabernet sauvignon. Same style of bottle as the eponymous white which I looked at in December. 65g, 12.5% ABV.

Healthy crimson colour, seems thicker than the other reds. Nose of red fruit.

Fairly tanniny but not too much so. Not particularly full-bodied. Red fruit. Not complicated. A bit sweet, maybe.

This is alright. Pretty unremarkable. Probably would drink again unless the price goes up dramatically. 6/10.
