Wine Spectator 88 points - A fresh, chalk-edged style, with good cut to the bitter cherry and plum fruit. Notes of savory, charcoal and tobacco leaf underscore the finish. A solid, traditional style. Drink now through 2016. 2,000 cases made. -JM (Jun 15 2015)
A classic example of Chinon, reflecting the diversity of soils found in an array of parcels. Bertrand seeks power derived from the heavy clay parcels combined with the finesse and elegance imparted by sandy soils. The wine is highlighted by dark fruit, spice and soft-integrated tannins.
