Vinous, 93 Points 

"From a limestone-based plot on the Chinon plateau, the 2016 Chinon Les Picasses features intriguing warming spices, including garam masala, as well as piquant black cherry, all followed up with mouthwatering acidity. Like their other cuvées, it's not showy and extroverted but quiet, its joy being in its tender caress on the midpalate. It has grown up in large foudres (50hl) over a year but reveals little woody influence. The finish has fine sinew and refined chalky tannins that draw the palate out on the lengthy, tea-leaf-like and spiced finish." 

Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points 

"This wine is richly structured and still densely tannic. With its ripe red fruits and firm tannins, the wine is destined for aging. Coming from the plateau above the town of Chinon, the wine has density and longevity. Drink from 2021." 

Wine Spectator, 91 Points 

"Sanguine and cigar notes frame the core of damson plum and dark cherry flavors in this medium-bodied, slightly chewy red. Black pepper and rosemary details linger on the finish. This shows great terroir typicity and flavor profile." 

Alcohol: 12.5%
