    October 12, 2019 - Test drive bottle from a case.

    Classic Chinon, with crisp red fruit, a hint of green tobacco, and very fresh acidity. It’s clearly young, but still provides pleasure, and gets better the longer it’s open. Overall it is a medium bodied style, and the balance feels to me more like short to mid-term ager. That’s not an issue, as it is always good to have delicious wine to drink.

    October 1, 2019 - The brett was mostly subdued and the complexity of this wine was nice. My score was tempered by the other wines in the flight.

    September 27, 2019 - Bright notes of skin and stem, red fruit citrus tart. Needs more time, more air, more patience.

    Rated +1 on a scale of -1 to +3.

    July 21, 2019 - Tasting on Friday, 19th July at Domaine Bernard Baudry, Cravant les coteaux: From the valley, just 200m away from the domaine: meaty, tannins, bell Pepper and smokey.

    July 18, 2019 - Lovely, classic Chinon. This pours a youthful deep violet. The nose is already complex of cranberry, red apple, hibiscus, dry hay, barnyard, burlap, peanut shells, charcoal, celery seed, and gravel. The palate has higher than usual acid for this cuvee, with a slightly apple/cider note. Tannin is slightly lower than usual. Quite a lot of cranberry, hibiscus, and cider on the finish. Strikes me as earlier drinking than the '15 and '16, but fresh, lively, and complex today. I'll still age my bottles a few years to see what happens.
