    Deep color, fresh cut flowers on the nose alongside a bit of green tea, raspberries, blueberries, a touch of plum, and a good tannic structure to support all of this. The wine's depth shows even more on the palate; give it 30-45 min of air and watch the magic happen. Truly a unique and beautiful wine.

    The wines of Pierre Jacques Druet are difficult to find but worth the hunt. The 2009 Chinon is earthy with notes of cedar and freshly cut fern. It has the most structure out of the line up I tasted and has enough backbone to keep it cellared for a few more years. There's a generous amount of red fruit and a lively quality to the wine as a whole. An interesting, complex wine to snag at an unbelievable price.

    This is absolute INSANITY! These Druet wines are all ultra heady and complex, but the 2009 is truly a special wine. It's still a tiny little baby, but there's already so much life and depth. It's cleanest of the multi-vintage line-up showing the most fruit on the nose. The palate is still lively, taught and full of deep earth notes, but it's not as austere as the others. Tons of structure and tannin mean that this one is designed for the long haul. Easily one of the best values in the store and the perfect way to move from some of the bolder richer wines to the Southwest into the Loire valley.
