Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Clos d'Isore 2015
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Chinon|
Wine EnthusiastOld vines produce this satisfyingly concentrated wine. Rich tannins have softened into the blackberry fruits that give the wine its ripe, bold character. Just ready to drink, this wine still has plenty of tannin in place, so it will be better from 2020.
Wine SpectatorVery fresh, with bright cassis and bitter cherry coulis flavors streaking through, underlined with light chalky minerality and backed by a long, floral- and savory-edged finish. Shows delightful purity. Best from 2018 through 2023.
