Joël Taluau, Vieilles Vignes Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil 1991

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

Fox red. Still pink-cheeked and vital and the wine smells and tastes like carnations and its potting soil. Cool fruit over a gauzy body with an umami tang. The opposite of facile, and you’ll have to go a good halfway to meet it. Now.
