"Just now opening up, this concentrated vigorous wine needs decanting for 45min but then reveals its sweet core. A wine of intensity and depth that is at the same time powerful and delicate. Drink now till 2020. Made from over 100-year-old cabernet franc vines, growing on unique limestone and clay soil, this wine is dense and extremely complex. A magnificent example of a fine Loire red from what is arguably Chinon's greatest producer." Best 2005-2020
