2009 Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône Les Champauvins
This one is totally good. Found it on sale for $13. Great value red. Very drinkable without food. Dark cherry, plum, raspberry, cocoa, herbs, a bit spicy, not too fruity, balanced tannins, not to sweet. Nice clean floral nose. Medium-full bodied. Delightful. 91 pts.
2009 Broglia Gavi Gian Piero Gavi di Gavi La Meirana
Lemon, cream, beautiful floral nose, mid-palate is mineral with green herbs, hint of cinnamon, balanced acidity, honey on the finish. Balanced, velvety mouth feel. This is a lovely, complex white wine. 92 points.
