The blockbuster 2009 Cornas Empreintes appears capable of 20+ years of longevity. A black/purple color is accompanied by copious aromas of blueberries blackberry liqueur charcoal graphite and subtle smoke and incense. Intense layered full-bodied and massive with a hint of tannins (they are largely buried by the wealth of fruit and extract) this 2009 will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring after its release and should drink well over the following two decades. One of the most successful Northern Rhone producers in the difficult 2008 vintage is the estate of Eric and Joel Durand. As one might expect the 2009s ratchet up the level of concentration power and potential longevity.

The finish is strong and intense. Best from 2012 through 2020. 1500 cases made.
