    June 21, 2021 - An excellent bottle of Loire red -- the nose has just a slight bit of dirty, animal funk and not too prominent pyrazines, but those both serve to frame some sweet black fruit. On the palate, you get a sensation of full ripeness, but without any heaviness. The pyrazines on the palate lighten up the dense, sweet fruit on the palate.

    March 27, 2021 - Magnifique à ce stade, avec des notes tertiaires bien présentes de profil nobles, avec un fruité toujours présent en arrière-plan. C'est exactement à ce stade que j'aime mais vins âgés. Les tannins sont assouplis mais encore assez sévères, caractéristique du millésime un peu partout en France. Grande réussite. 94.

    March 14, 2020 - Good showing for a potentially great wine. While this is a bit anomalous for Loire Franc in terms of intensity, I don't find it out of character. This wine is to Loire Cab Franc what matcha is to regular lightly steeped green tea.

    Opened up with olive, currant and savory tones. Tobacco and cassis became more prominent as it opened up over several hours. All about pure currants and earth tones on the palate, with a medium acidity entry. The lower acidity and higher alcohol than typical for Chinon gives it a surprising roundness and warmth. Long finish with interplay between dark fruit and tobacco. The tannins are a bit hard and rather grippy--that is the big question mark for development.

    Since I have several bottles, the 15 year mark was a logical point to check in. But I think another 5-10 years is the time frame for bottle #2. The incipient olive notes are auspicious--that is what a deep Franc (or Merlot or Cab S) should develop over time. And there is plenty of stuffing and freshness here. On the other hand, the astringency of the tannins may be a long term characteristic.

    January 24, 2020 - Tannic, decent fruit but the tannins are pretty grainy and rough

    April 6, 2019 - Red and black fruit, powerful and dense, spices and herbs, drinking well, still have 14 bottles, will drink them most probably over the next 5 years.
