Château Nénine 2006 - awesome!

I enjoyed a bottle of Château Nénine 2006, Côtes de Bordeaux last weekend. Delicious. Unlike the nasty South African Pinotage from last week, this highly undervalued gem (a whole $6.99 at Trader Joe's!) had floral notes of lavender, and a superb start, full taste without being over-powering & subtle finish; for drinking with food, without food (while watching a movie Saturday night I finished the last 2 glasses). It saddens me slightly that I don't have another one in my wine rack. It's such a joy to find such wonderful hidden treasure. Appellation Premières Côtes de Bordeaux Controlée - always yummy.
