Saturated ruby. More gloss here, less rusticity in comparison the A & B Rion Chaumes. Cherubic blue and red berry fruit: a remoulade of red raspberry, myrtille, hoisin, espresso (from the oak). Suave in style with a bit more distinction. An unalloyed minerality at the end: not as rigorous or filigree as the very best but true to Chaumes. Drinking well now; you can still keep this. Now – 2020.
