The 2017, Mont Gravet, Vieilles Vignes, Carignan, Pays d'Herault is stunningly delicious! There, we said it, a stunningly delicious for $9!!! 100% old vine Carignan, which can be made in to some of the most age-worthy wines in the world. Old vine in this case is roughly 70 years. Mont Gravet is located in Gascony region on Southwest France near the town of Toulouse.
This medium-bodied wine is great in the Summer, with a slight chill (about 30 minutes in the ice box). The nose and palate consists of dried cranberry and raspberry, supported by hints of black olive, tobacco, earth and black tea. The mild tannins offer a touch of structure on the finish.
Pair this up with spicy charcuterie, roast chicken, lamb gyros or seared ahi tuna. Salute!
