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 yet you’ll have to go a good halfway to meet it.  Now.
