Stellar. I've had this wine from other vintages, but never from one as structured as 05. The interplay of tannin and fruit to herb and stone laced notes... great.

Seems bigger than the 12.5% on the back label. Still very pure fruit. Ultimately, too hot to drink.

2004. Juicy, delicious. Hits all the chinon hallmarks on the nose.
