Les Picasses Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

First go with the ‘16 and it’s got the blackberry, plum, tobacco and mineral that just goes on and on. A silky 12.5% it rivals any previous vintage. Drunk over 3 days and it’s still elegant at the last sip. — 2 days ago

Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2013

Funny, when I first drank this my notes were a ‘meh’ kind of experience- just too shallow, the freshness & acidity there, nicely formed, slightly underripe blackberries, but it’s stuck in 2nd gear. After forgetting to get my notes down, I had a previously un recalled memory: the bottle really needs more time. I want to say it’s like a Raffault Chinon in its ‘dumb’ phase. — 3 years ago

Chinon Cabernet Franc Rosé 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Rosé is done in the saignée method, sourced from all the tanks of Domaine Olga Raffault reds. The result is round and generous, providing a sense of softness in the mouth. In terms of flavors, there's red fruit, pear drop and a touch of savoriness. There's plenty of freshness here, but it's balanced and appetizing with a little grip on the finish which keeps things moving along. Lots of pleasure and balance.

Monasterio de las Viñas

Gran Reserva Cariñena Garnacha Blend 2014

Very complex wine. I got this as a anniversary gift from @Olga Cebrian (thank you so much, Olgita!). Low alcohol, dry and very "closed" at mouth first. Smelled very fresh, like green grass after a good rest, and a little of red berries when you swirl. The color is very dark. Berries in the after taste. Pretty good! I love the Spanish wines that are modern with the class of old wines from France. — 3 years ago

Château Thivin

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2019

I had with Passover meal. I have always found to be closed & more ‘ dumb’ in its infancy- almost like Olga Raffault chinon. Yet all the juicy & rewarding red fruit is there. Kermit importer. — a year ago
