This is savory and delicious in every way. I'd only ever had younger bottles before now, and there's obviously no turning back.

The 'Bootsy' Collins of Chinon - mercap beginning - open to exotica - blood iron and sous bois flavors. No Brett - surprised!

Ripe fruit and savory herbs, blended together beautifully. Lots of aging potential here. #cabfranc4life

Classic Chinon Rouge. Black cherry and damp stones. Alive and kicking, many years ahead of it.
