    October 10, 2018 - Opened tonight with pan-seared ribeye. A nose of red fruits, smoke, pencil lead, tobacco and herbs promises great things. On the palate, it was medium-bodied with deep fruit, bright acidity and some fine tannins in the finish.

    March 5, 2018 - Nice developed, dried but ripe fruit, cherries, cassis, pronounced pyrazine, mint, dusty, iron, bit watery but without being thin, ripe tannins, good acid.

    June 25, 2017 - Showing some signs of development at this stage. I'm not in a hurry to drink my last one since fruit is still good. This is in a great spot at the moment.

    November 21, 2016 - Olga Raffault Vertical (Cherry Circle Room): Nose: The nose is highly perfumed and elegant with red cherries, rose petals, violets, herbs, root vegetables, and some tobacco notes. There is good depth with the nose favoring the upper register.

    Taste: Medium bodied with medium+ acidity and medium+ tannins. The tannins are still quite youthful with some chewiness to them along with red cherries, roe petals, herbs, tobacco, and root vegetables.

    Overall: This is a lovely Chinon that is entering its window. It is a long distance runner, but the perfumes are beguiling right now. This can certainly develop for another 5+ years, but there is no shame in opening it right now.
