Tasting Notes

Direct from the estate! Made from 100-year-old Cabernet Franc vines, growing on unique limestone and clay soil, this wine is dense and extremely complex. A magnificent example of a fine Loire red from what is arguably Chinon's greatest producer. Great aging potential, too. Full bodied and concentrated, a great vintage for Clos de L'Olive with abundant fruit, sweet rich mouthfeel and ripe juicy tannins. Very impressive wine for drinking well into its third decade. These wines evolve into the pinnacle of elegance, with haunting aromas of rich plummy fruit, sweet herbs, spice and earth, yet still very fresh, vibrant, and complex with intensity and length unmatched by all but the top properties in Bordeaux. We can't recommend them highly enough, though you should let the older wines rest at least 4-6 weeks before drinking them, as they may have literally just got off the boat.
