93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Les Cornuelles is one of the best vineyards in the village of Cravant-lès-Coteaux, with a high clay content that produces powerful examples of Chinon. Monsieur Plouzeau has fifty year-old vines in this excellent lieu à dit. The 2017 les Cornuelles is a stellar young bottle of Chinon, offering up a nascently complex and very pure blend of cassis, black cherries, a bit of meatiness, graphite, dark soil tones, espresso, cigar smoke and just a whisper of oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, very pure and soil-driven, with a superb core of fruit, ripe, well-integrated tannins and outstanding length and grip on the young, structured and extremely promising finish. All this excellent wine needs is time in the cellar to blossom! 2027-2060. (May/Jun 2020)"
