August 25, 2014 - Charming high-toned nose yields to a palate of super-delicious red fruits and bramble. High-toned and acidic, but the fruit here is just so juicy and crunchy. Texture is a bit jagged but that just adds character. A really lovely wine.

August 13, 2014 - Another excellent bottle. A bit tight and unyielding at first, showing more tannic structure than I recall from previous bottles, but with air it eases up and opens out aromatically to show that classic Chinon fragrance of red fruit, earth, and higher toned green herbal and forestal notes with a lightweight, silken palate presence. Still some time ahead on this though, I'll let my other bottles rest.1 person found this helpful Comment

October 20, 2013 - Snappy, fresh Chinon with lots of green undertones set around a ripe, pleasant core of red fruits. Like my other bottles, this really deepened with air. The florals seemed to get a boost, and the tobacco seemed to blossom.

October 20, 2013 - Drinking so well right out of the bottle. Earthy nose with green pepper and thyme. Herbal. So polished on the palate, silky and ultimately quffable. Dark fruit. Olive. Just great. Not sure will it will go, and doesn't matter, as I'll be drinking mine down soon!
