Typically very weedy on the nose with sweet currant and red berry fruit then sottobosco scents with unusual tones of canvas. Rich and round with particularly fine balance and great length to the earthy, slightly herbal yet very ripe red currant fruits. 91pts

Everyone benefits from an easy year for vignerons. 1989 was blessed with a mild winter, a long growing season and a pristine harvest, perhaps the vintage of the century for the region. The resulting wines were graced with concentrated fruit, balanced acidity, and certain ageing capacity. This is absolutely a showstopping bouquet of burnt violet to be enjoyed with a proper roast, exotic barbecue or perfectly aged strong cheeses.


Winemaker's Notes:

Bouquet of black currant, blackberry, cherry, prune, liquorice, cocoa and spiced notes with well integrated tannins. A truly wonderful red that shows the aging potential of Chinon.
