2007 Isole e Olena, IGT, Cepparello

And last night

2016 Catherine & Pierre Breton, Chinon, Épaulé Jeté, Beaumont

The Cepparello was definitely the head of class of the above. Outstanding wine. I have another bottle which I may hold for a couple of years, but I doubt it will get any better than it already is.

The Beaumont Chinon was a very interesting wine. Initially light and fruity it went well with some roasted salmon, but later on it became dark, brooding and more complex. I'm going to pick up some more and let them sleep to see what happens to this.
