Just in time for dinner - Chateau Les Gravieres de la Brandille

I felt compelled to write a quick introduction and tasting note for this wine after I opened a bottle at a 'dog and pony' show tasting last Wednesday night in the store.The theme for the tasting was overwhelming, undervalued, and this wine hit it out of the ball park.

I first started buying the wine in the 2014 vintage. It was very good back then and I wished I had kept some for myself. The 2015 vintage was as good and again, I wished I had kept some for myself. But the present vintage, 2016, is simply awesome and awesome value.
