An old fashioned Saint Estephe with power from a very rich vintage — tannin and muscle along with cassis and cedary bouquet and good fruit — steak on the grill wine!
The Baudry's small plot of un-grafted vines on the lower part of the Clos Guillot is still alive and producing, and in 2011 the results are fabulous! Generally speaking the 2011 Chinons are forward, pleasing wines but with a bit less grip and minerality than the superb 2010s. In this case, however, the vintage seems to suit the young franc de pied vines and the wine is superb. The color is a deep red/black with complex floral black fruit aromas. The palate is fresh with bright blackberry/red currant fruit. It's zippy and long and all together delightful!
En Chailloux, first bottled in 1982, is Dagueneau's first single-vineyard wine.
From 50 year-old vines on the Cote de Py in a parcel with southern exposure. "...displays a stricking intesity of fresh red and black raspberries alluringly inflected by vanilla, mint, pencil lead and smoked meat; an amazing alliance of density and silken texture with high-spirited brightness and vivacity...this phenomenal value should provide an extraordinary drinking experience over at least a half-dozen years." — David Schildknecht
Jean-Paul has 2 parcels of 50 year-old vines on a steep section of the Cote with a south-east exposition at about 1,000 ft of altitude. (No, I didn't tilt the camera...) The thin soil is almost entirely stones of granite with a high iron content. (A more interesting terroir than the thicker, damper soils of Brouilly.) This is a gorgeous wine! Lovely, ripe black and red fruit aromas with a touch of cocoa and spice. The palate is deep but balanced by refreshing acidity, with a silky, slightly grainy texture. A beautiful Beaujolais for current drinking and over the next few years. Highly recommended! "Contains very little sulfite," says the label "store in a cool place and consume rapidly after uncorking" We haven't noticed any problem keeping this wine, but consuming rapidly after uncorking will be easy...
