2002 Couly-Dutheil Chinon Clos de l'Echo

rated 87 points: First of all I think this is very young. Nice fruit and sweetness, olive, metallic mineral, with tannins that don't seem obtrusive but are powdery/drying in the finish. Very acidic. Not a hint of green or bell paper and the mineral is not out of proportion. I have one more bottle and will wait at least another 5 years because this seems like it has a nice balance. Cork on this looked like it would fail in the long run though.
