You can’t spell Chinon without ON


Perfect deep ruby with thin pink edges.  Dirty baby diaper brilliant shit nose breathes into edgy spice and wet granite.  All the floral dreams and wishes combine with earth and acid in a pubescent perfume so filled with perfect fruit it is positively nose-watering.

In the mouth, thin, clear perfection, green and ripe all at once, minerality calving off in all directions–spicy, hot, base and zenithed, at once a conglomeration and still so focused, nothing running astray, fruit meagering out to sharp tannins late-middle and flowing perfect icy streams of cherry and pomegranate-seed which become watery tannins.

Kermit Lynch knows a mean Chinon.
