    December 19, 2016 - Phenomenal wine. So fragrant and compelling with an intense core of bright red and dark berried fruit, green forestal and herbal notes, tree bark, pine needles, and other savoury scents that make it hard to move away from the scent here. The palate is so elegant - very finessed and lightweight with some fine grained tannins on the back end suggesting this could still use more time, but it's already a wow experience. Glad I still have a few more.

    December 19, 2016 - Leather, herbs, forest, deep red fruit; "clean funk" on the nose. Beautiful, silky palate; herbal, forest; like drinking a pine tree with red fruit. Amazing nose, yummy palate. Not yet a lot of complexity, but i expect that to change with a few more years in bottle. 91-94

    August 8, 2016 - Not familiar with this producer. For a cold-climate cab franc, this is fairly warm and fruity. There is fresh and candied red cherry on the nose accompanied by a faint trace of green leafs, and pepper. Palate is a red cherry on entry, but hollow in the middle and with a brief ending. not sure what to make of it. it is a decent wine, but was expecting more. Does not seem to me to hold much structure to indicate a long life, but again not that familiar with Chinon or this producer in particular. Judging whats in the glass tonight we are at 86-87p

    July 7, 2016 - Largely agree with R&Rler. Shared same btl. I just felt that its old school structure was a bit too out front to fully enjoy right now, for my palate. Great potential here but needs time....for my palate.

    July 7, 2016 - Pizza Night in the North Loop (Dave's Place, Mpls): DArk red color. PNP, drank 2 glasses over 2 hours. This got progressively better through the night, I had intended to decant, but that just didn't work out. There's a nice touch of earth here, pleasant cigar aromas, a little scorched earth and smoke, dark red berry fruits. The palate near full bodied, round yet still with a leaner energy, dark red fruits, firm but very fine grained tannins, medium plus finish. Boy, there's a lot going on here and it is drinking well now already, though this shows quite a bit of potential for aging. I was liking this a lot. 91+pts.
