      Tasting Notes and Description
      In the beautiful country of Véron, cradled between the Loire and the Vienne, the Domaine Olga Raffault has passed on its expertise in making its Chinon wines for five generations! Olga Raffault has devoted her whole life to these landscapes that she loved so much and has always known how to share her love of Wine! At JN Wine, we are proud to be a part of this story.

      Les Barnabés comes from vineyards in the commune of Savigny-en-Véron on the alluvial soils of the Loire and the gravelly soils of the Vienne, Close to the Raffault winery. On the Chinon style spectrum, it straddles both styles, even if it is closer to the lighter end: fragrant and open with those defining aromas and yet with the definite fine tannins and fresh acidity to age well for at least five years in bottle.

      "From the commune of Savigny-en-Véron, the 2018 Chinon Les Barnabés is sourced from the alluvial soils of the Loire and the gravels from the Vienne. The wine opens pure, clear and fresh, but it's also deep and concentrated, with spicy notes of ripe cherries, black berries, raspberries and violets. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, this is an intense, dense, round and fruity Chinon with a sweet and remarkably long and soft but elegant and refined finish. The tannins are remarkably fine, and the charming licorice sweetness is reminiscent of fine and elegant wines from the Languedoc or even Southern Rhône. 12.5% alcohol. " (92 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate, commenting on the 2018 vintage)
