93 points "93 points Wine & Spirits Top 100 values of the Year: "This is stylish and elegant, with deep, dark aromas of tobacco, clove, black cherry and blackberry. It's delicious now, and will be even better with age." Twenty-four-year-old Jerome Billard doesn’t make your father’s Chinon. After work at both Chateau Petrus in Bordeaux and Dominus in California, two of the world’s most prestigious estates, who would expect him to turn out Cabernet Franc like anyone else in the area? The Chinon rouge from the property is a case study in the balance between power and elegance, spice and softness, fat and acidity. Named for a parcel on the property, "Les Chiens-Chiens," the red is produced from 40- to 80-year-old vines of Cabernet Franc. Only a small amount is allocated to the United States." Best 2008-
