Clos de l'Olive Chinon Cabernet Franc 1997

Lyle Fass

Classic Chinon nose. Wet leaves, earth, herbaciousness, leather, feral, hay, olives as the name implies, cassis, mint and tree bark. So complex. Aged. Classic classic stuff. Palate is silky and sweet with incredible freshness and acidity. Elegant and tart with a red currant like sweetness. A barely type of red fruited sweetness. Very elegant and refined Olive. Juicy and bright. Tastes younger than its age. Wonderful. — 7 months ago

La Baronnie Madeleine Chinon Cabernet Franc 2007

Black currant, bell pepper, mushroom, wet leafs and leather. Medium tannin, a bit integrated. Thin and a bit short. Not a big vintage to hold for long, but a lot of wine for hardly any money. — 8 months ago

Clos de l'Echo Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

Lyle Fass

After having a 97 I wanted to check out a promising young vintage. Stunning nose or cigar, ash, beautiful herbals, tree bark, grassy field, black currant, smells like 1940’s St. Estephe. Very foresty. Love it. Palate is fresh and energetic and so young. Really young. Needs 10+ years. At least. Big tannins. Good red and black cassis fruit but so young and unformed. It’s all there. — 5 months ago

No formal notes, thought it was cru bojo when served blind. Rocking wine - silly at the 10+ € shelf price — 2 years ago
