4 stars "deep red color and an attractive fruity nose. On the palate, concentrated with bell pepper flavors followed by a spicy and smoky finish. "

"This cuvée, from a selected parcel situated on clay-limestone hillsides facing due south, offers a rich, powerful wine that's sappy and fruity. Nothing outdoes a Cabernet franc when perfectly ripe. This cuvée from Philippe Alliet is very much sought after by fans of true Chinon, Chinon that bears the stamp of terroir and has rich, powerful substance making it wonderfully long-lived."
