2006 Herault Chinon
"#1; COLOR-medium; NOSE-earthy; fertilized dirt; some blackberry & currant; hint of broccoli; a little tight; TASTE-this is very good; very smooth; great mid-palate; gorgeous, firm tannins on the back-end; explodes w/ raw veggies (broccoli & celery) meets cherry juice w/ some black plum; very smooth; pretty complex; a great broccoli flavor on the back-end; some brussel sprout action; this is a vegetal play, yet enough nice creamy fruit (blackberry & cherry); will last 5-7 years; GV-90 "-Gv
"Incredible value for Chinon. This has lots of elegance and good dark berry fruits with nuances of the typical green vegetable and herb flavors. Soft in body, but bright in flavor, this is hard to beat for the money."
