93 Points John Gilman: The 2018 Chinon “les Barnabés” from Domaine Olga Raffault is also raised entirely in stainless steel tank prior to bottling, and this single vineyard bottling is also made for earlier consumption, as befits its riverside vineyard planted on gravel and alluvial sands. The 2018 les Barnabés is also nicely cool at 12.5 percent alcohol and provides a more black fruity aromatic profile than the above, wafting from the glass in a youthfully complex blend of dark berries, cassis, tree bark, cigar ash, gravelly soil, smoke, a touch of spiced meats and a lovely topnote of juniper berries. On the palate the wine is pure, focused and full-bodied, with a fine core, excellent mineral drive and grip, suave, fine-grained tannins and a very long, vibrant and complex finish. While there is a bit of buried tannin here, this wine is already drinking with generosity and is very tasty, though it will easily last in the cellar thirty years or more! This is fine, fine juice. 2021-2050+. "
