Chinon Les Picasses, Olga Raffault


Consistently producing solid, great value and classically styled Cabernet Franc for years, Olga Raffault is a bit of a diamond hiding in plain sight, the wines are starting to get the recognition they deserve, powered by the New York wine scene. Les Picasses is probably the most famous vineyard from the Chinon appelation, producing structured and age-worthy wines.
