Roncier (NV) Red wine review by (PB)

Purple cherry hue with aromas that seem pinot noir-like blended with Grenache. There are earthy notes, light spice and a touch of white pepper.

Palate-Lighter strawberry and raspberry confused with an awkward mouth feel and an overall clunky confused taste with an unpleasant reminder on the finish that you just wasted some money.

I was shopping for a Burgundy and grabbed a higher end bottle and saw this for $11. I figured what the heck, you never know. You might just find a great bargain; maybe an overproduction of wine bottled under an uninformative label. Well not so; I think the names were changed to protect the guilty. This is a wine to be passed up.
