2008 Olga Raffault Chinon Les Picasses - France, Loire Valley, Touraine, Chinon (5/5/2020)
So the Raffault has a lovely bouquet, the CFO picked out a hint of caraway and I'm getting ripe black cherry on the nose. The taste is a bit subdued and tired, I'm thinking that this wine is in a shutdown phase, somewhere between the young fresh and fruity stage and the older earthy leathery stage. (86 pts.)
