Bigger than most Chinons I know. Bit of funk on the nose, just the right amount of oak. Beautiful.

2012 vintage - dense black berry/cherry pie with a sweet graphite lick to it, ripe, dense and hella inviting, gorgeous, only and deep, sweet plum and icing sugar, über!
Such full, rich, pure and characterful black fruit, plush but present tannin, if there is anything that lets this down a touch it could crank up the acid a touch but his is beautiful and will only get better

Trevlig, generöst med smak för näsa och mun. Godizgruva ju längre botten du kommer. Småpartierna

If you like sucking wine through used bandaids this is the wine for you! If you don't care for medicinal odor and bandaid flavors please move along.
