This is a superb "les Picasses" from Jean de Bonnaventure at Chateau de Coulaine, which has been practising organic and biodynamic agriculture since 1988. The parcel is at the top of the vineyard with southern exposure, on the classic clay/limestone "tuffeau" in Beaumont-en-Veron. This quite dense and powerful Chinon is aged in 15% new barrels and barrels of one and two wines. The 2017 is in a really nice place at the moment. Elegant tannins, pronounced mineral depth, with medium-weight and subtle black fruit and earth. All of the elements are in harmony here. A classic Chinon.
