The flagship Chinon bottling of “les Picasses” from Domaine Olga Raffault, made from fifty-plus year-old vines in the heart of this excellent vineyard, is outstanding in 2014. This is always a cuvée built for the cellar and the 2014 vintage is no exception. The bouquet is pure and promising, offering up scents of red and dark berries, cigar smoke, a complex base of soil tones, a touch of tree bark, a hint of meatiness and a topnote of menthol. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very transparent in personality, with a rock solid core of fruit, ripe, chewy tannins, good focus and grip and a long, nascently complex and beautifully soil-driven finish. This is outstanding juice in the making! John Gilman, A View from the Cellar
