94 Points John Gilman: "The les Peuilles vineyard is a plateau down fairly close to the Vienne River, with the vines planted on clay and flint soils. This cuvée is aged in oak for its first year, in the family’s combination of old oak and chestnut foudres, prior to racking back into stainless steel tank for another year of elevage. The 2018 les Peuilles is a gorgeous young Chinon, with the bouquet wafting from the glass in a refined blend of black cherries, sweet dark berries, cigar wrapper, dark soil tones, tree bark, a hint of chicory and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and very pure, with a lovely core of black fruit, excellent soil undertow and grip, ripe, seamless tannins and a very long, complex and classy finish. This is a superb young wine, which is certainly accessible out of the blocks, due to its impeccable balance, but is really made for the cellar and deserves to be tucked away until its tenth birthday, when the fireworks will really begin! 2028-2065.
