Still interesting and vibrant despite age. Opened August 2016. Jammy with dark fruits and smooth. Great cab franc.

Cigar box and damp leaves. No perceivable fruit on the nose and plenty of VA. Tight tannins and still very fresh on the palate

Showed wonderfully. Plenty of fruit & earthy poblano pepper with a savory aromatic note. Tannins are fully integrated & this is a great example of the magic of aged Raffault.

Showing well with more fruit remaining than expected from a 35 year old.

Wow. Dare I say a baby? Stuffed. Delicious. Far from mature.

'82 Olga Raffault... Wow. I am so into the delicacy and drinkability and beauty of this wine, but also the crisp acidity and the briny nose. I'd never had a Chinon with this age... One bottle in the house and I couldn't resist.

The longevity on these is simply insane and otherworldly. Secondary notes mix with ever present dark fruit & still hanging on tannins. Amazing stuff.
