"...comes in at a cool twelve percent octane in this vintage and offers up a very promising, albeit youthful, bouquet of apple, chalky soil tones, sweet quince, orange peel, a hint of the fresh pineapple to come, citrus blossoms and a touch of lanolin. On the palate the wine is pure, focused and full-bodied, with a superb girdle of acidity, fine balance and grip and a long, soil-driven and nascently complex finish. This is certainly approachable today, but it will be significantly better with at least a few years of bottle age on it. A very, very impressive bottle of Chinon Blanc! 2020-2040+."
