I love this grape, this vintage. Hits the right tannins, dry, well rounded

Riktigt frisk med kittlande avslut. Härlig vikt, bärighet och längd. Bra utvecklad. Bretons Chinon är lite mer intressant men den här är ett bra, ganska tillgängligt alternativ.

Lovely deep red cherry and blueberry, green peppery pyrazines, black pepper, and a subdued graphite backbone.

Wild! Red fruit, paprika, minerals and rarely cleaned cow shed. Smells great! Fresh tannins with quite a bit of bite and the minerality is clear on the palate too. The finish is fruit filled, like a mix of lingonberry and strawberry. Very nice.

Reference quality. Super high acid but super purity and balance.
