I understand "des escargots" but then why is it "les vins" ? He tasted [some] snails... we drank [all the] wine?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
"we drank delicious wines and he tasted snails":
You will use "les" in front of "escargots" -> generalising / general statement
Link here: le, la, l', les before before nouns when generalising (definite articles)
You will use "des" in front of "vins délicieux" / "de" in front of "délicieux vins"-> [some] delicious wines / partitive article
Link here: Using ''de / d' '' instead of 'des' in front of adjectives preceding nouns (partitive article)
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
"les vins" as in tasting all the various wines on offer?
Hope this may help.
