Vivacious, young and punchy on the nose. Fresh dark fruit with tangy herbal notes on top of one soured and lean, structured fruit. This is young but has great promise and never gets blowsy or over the top. Fantastic stuff

A haunting nose of smoke, earth and red fruit. Seamless in the mouth with multiple layers of complex flavors of dark & red fruit and olives. With air less minerally but greater fruit and olive flavors.

2012 vintage. Amazing, even this young. I've seen too many folks turn their nose up at the Chaillot because it's not as limited or prestigious as the Reynard or the Sans Soufre, and those people are missing out. OUT. STAND. ING.

Drinking well ahead of its early time (2012 vintage)! It's a singer!

Delicious, savory with black currant and high toned fruit. Personally think it's very young, but 👌
