2012. Terrific wine. So Pure. Give it some time in a decanter and as it unwinds, it starts to show the Chambolle side of Cab Franc.

Wow. Amazing on day 2 (day 1 was dark red fruit and a lot of red bell pepper) with a nose that was like a raft of strawberry, raspberry and a bit of boysenberry with more subtle tones of bell pepper, tobacco and earth. No noticeable wood, ample acidity but not austere. Hits a sweet spot for Cab Franc. For history, quality, QPR - will take this over Rougeard any day.

Great nose. Herbaceous. A bit too much bell pepper on the palate. Maybe should've decanted a bit.

Just a baby, but with full grown facial hair! Curious how this will age. Kept trying to unfurl itself tonight, but was never able to take flight.
