Cassegrain Chambourcin

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Dark, gamey aromas of cherries, plums and polished leather reveal undertones of acetone, while its sweet, forward and juicy palate of sour-edged cherry fruit quickly becomes lean, short and skinny. It then dries out to an unbalanced, metallic and varnishy high-acid finish. Hard to find pleasure here.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Vegetal aromas of confection-like cherries and berries are slightly meaty, with an underlay of vanilla oak. Lacking great length and persistence, the palate's simple raspberry and plum flavours and light oak are bound by sappy and rather greenish tannins.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium red-purple; a light, fresh, juicy bouquet with hints of fresh-mown hay, then a similarly fresh, juicy, early-drinking palate with zero tannins.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Typically bright red-purple; American oak is fairly obvious and provides the initial impact on the bouquet, and is again evident on the palate, though not quite to the same degree. There is soft, gently sweet plummy fruit on the early and mid-palate, dipping towards the finish in typical Chambourcin fashion. Pleasant early-drinking style.
