Ne......ni..........ni

Please help me clarify the usage on the indefinate article in this context:

Is it the same as in English; I don't like the wine or the cheese (when offered both) Je n'aime ni le vin ni le fromage.

and, I don't like wine or cheese (in general) Je n'aime ni vin ni fromage

Thanks.

This relates to:
Ne ... ni ... ni = Neither ... nor (negation) -

Hi Paul,

yes you are right: without the definite article it becomes a general statement.
