Olga Raffault Chinon les Picasses 1996

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Rich sweet earth on the nose, it’s mica flecked yet with a jammy, almost figgy sweetness. Fresh and rich with floral top notes and mild insinuations of tomato leaf and dried green pepper and shoe leather and menthol The mouthfeel is wonderfully fresh and crisp with gently austere tannins and superb acids supporting moderate cranberry and sour red cherry fruit. Finishes with good length, a bit of wood spice and some nice cherry and wild plum jam on the finale. Very nicely put together and just beginning to drink well though with a long life ahead. 89pts

Despite the age on this wine it still has a lot of green, vegetal flavors and a good bit of acidity.

Smooth and soft tannins, with strong cedar and cherry delight the palate in this dry and delicate wine.

Licorice on the nose, enthanolic. Acidic, lean and musty. Lots of earthiness comes through. Some glycerol as well - it feels very viscous, and has an acetone edge.
