Quite elegantly red fruited, a bit of musk and savory notes, but surprisingly primary. Compared to the ‘89, this is lighter in structure, almost airy, but with years of life left.

Proof that one does NOT have to spend a lot of money to acquire wines that will age gracefully into a beautifully mature wine 36 years of age. The usual pepper note is there that tells you are with a Cabernet Franc from #chinon, but the real beauty unfurls with the elegant spices of tobacco leaf and old leather, notes of forest floor, subtle mint, dried red currant and cassis fruits. Simply beautiful and I will now go buy a case of 2010 and say goodbye to it in storage for at least ten years. $20-25 retail for the recent vintages. #1979 #smashingpumpkins #raffault

Exciting to see how well these wines age and how incredibly affordable they are.

1979. Delicate. Nuanced. Sublime. Cedar and bell pepper tones. Just a hint of tannin. Soft mouthfeel. This wine begs you to examine and investigate.

1979 drinking about as well as can be expected. Fully mature, with deep savory flavors and aromas. Cork was saturated as you can see, but still lively on the tongue. Thanks for sharing Tim!
