Domaine des Champs Vignons Chinon Vieilles Vignes Cuvée des Chérubins 2003

Member Review by ryanopaz:

Deep purpuly red. Nose of strawberry, cranberry, light black pepper and mineral. As it warms aromas of creamy vanilla, but not as if formed by oak. Medium weight with strong acid and light to medium tannins. Rich fruit on the palate with cherry, strawberry, light spice, a nice mineral component while on the finish you get a strong herbal note. As it warms the finish becomes rougher and while the fruit shows more the finish becomes tighter with a strong acid-tannin roughness. It showed a lot of promise but fell apart towards the end. alt=3 c5a10t12o6=83 [83]
