NEW LOWER PRICE!! WHAT A BARGAIN, AGAIN!!

A MOST PLEASING WHITE GRAVES/BDX. FOR $12.95 2016 CHATEAU DUCASSE - CHATEAU BTLD. GRAVES

This dry charming white wine comes from the Bordeaux area of Graves and is made from a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon and is now most enjoyable. This 2016 vintage of the white Ch. Ducasse is now being offered on special for $12.99 (as opposed to its price elsewhere around the country at $17.00 to $21.00). One reviewer of this wine described its 2016 vintage as bringing an extra bit of exuberant fruit to go with its usual mineral snappiness. Comments I certainly agree with.

RATING: 89/90

PRICE: $12.95, **** bargain
