At its peak of deliciousness, 1996 is one of my favorite vintages for Loire reds. Beautifully resolved, fully mature, yum!

More fruit driven than the Filliatreau, with blackberry and a hint of green pepper. Amazing.

Classic Chinon here. Maybe a little green. Definitely some green olive notes present. Loved this wine.
