Dark and densely packed yet terrifically racy with plum sauce pastis and crushed blackberry fruit wound with charcoal and roasted tobacco leaf notes but carried by riveting acidity. A long singed iron note hangs on the finish. Shows amazing power and vivacity. A new paradigm for Cornas. Best from 2013 through 2023. 50 cases imported. -JM

The 2009 Cornas Domaine du Coulet Billes Noires possesses a black/purple color terrific fruit an unctuous thick texture abundant roasted meat black fruit damp earth and forest floor characteristics as well as a hint of flowers in the background. It is more accessible than the backward massive 2009 Cornas Les Terrasses du Serre but even the latter wine has a certain seductive appeal. Both of these 2009s should drink well for 10-15 years.

Closes on a sweet note... Dark violet color. Intense aromas and flavors of black raspberry and candied flowers with a bright mineral overtone. Vibrant and precise on the palate offering a suave blend of depth and energy. Closes on a sweet note of dark berry preserves leaving smoke and floral notes behind.
