Deep red, light green, brambly fruit core, remarkably fresh and wide aromatics and flavors, quite youthful. Less graphite than I’d have imagined, more pure fruit. In the zone.

In perfect shape - if bourgogne rouge, cote du py & st Joseph had a baby it would taste like this: aromatic, juicy, savory, delicious.

'Les Picasses' lies along a riverbank on a fairly steep slope that is primarily alluvial clay overlaying chalk and limestone. The vines are over 50 years old and the site is known to produce wines with fabulous purity and minerality. As such the Olga Raffault 'Les Picasses' Chinon 1989 has had time to mellow, the aromas are quite lovely—lavender, game, worn leather, a touch of barnyard, and cellar dust. There is a throaty, sensual wildness to this wine, punctuated by a vein of bright acidity and minerals. Everything I love in Loire Valley Cab Franc.

Dust, iron, blood, red and blue currants. Young, pure, and very vibrant for 89!

1989 vintage is surprisingly super fragrant, peppery on the nose, soft balance
