Glimpses of Languedoc and Piemonte wine

Two wines impressed tasted by the glass.  Sometimes I don't have a wine notepad which has the rather foreseeable corollary of being sociable.  A 2012 Gravillas Sous Les Cailloux des Grillons from the Côtes de Brian Vin de Pays/IGP in the Languedoc had some garrigue like interest.  I don't think I've ever come across this IGP before here or abroad, yet here it is sold locally by the glass!  The 2011 Matteo Correggia Roero nebbiolo from Piemonte left a particularly good impression of fruit, structure and drinkability.
