Loved every drop of this in its weedy, vegetal, fading glory. But the tart black cherry and red currant fruit is still very much there amid the dried tobacco, leather, stewed tomato and (of course) bell pepper. The riper, glossier ‘89 is without question the superior wine but this has a certain crepuscular charm, enhanced by the fact that it’s my birth year...like me, it’s not getting any younger :)

Olga never misses...@Scott DeBenedett called this blind, impressive considering we were like 10+ bottles deep at that point

Very well made, drinking very well right now. It's pyrazine driven and the nose is a fajita: roasted bell pepper at its peak. #cabfranc #chinon #loire

Right in its zone now. Tannins have melded seemlessly w/ tons of tobacco and funk. Even a bit fresher than another btl I had recently--maybe this one was reconditioned? Regardless, a delicious btl of Chinon!

Holy jalapeño. Plum falling off the pit. Well integrated tannins. Mature, elegant old bird.

Pure elegance. Absolutely remarkable. Still fresh and showing some decayed fruit with charcoal, smoke, pepper and tobacco leaf.

Peak of maturity, sliding down the hill into all savory - damp earth and humus and old leather. Certainly rustic. Still graceful.

Absolutely magnificent. This is tight and can live for years on. Ink like color, dense and opulent. Love the nose of tobacco, beautiful sandalwood, camphor and mineral. It's so rocky it can be a mountain. Loved the experience.
