Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, September 2015
The 2010 Cornas Vieilles Vignes is jaw-dropping stuff. Inky colored and incredibly concentrated, with sensational notes of bouquet garni, iron (blind I might have guess 2010 Clape), violets, crushed rock and decent black... The 2010 Cornas Vieilles Vignes is jaw-dropping stuff. Inky colored and incredibly concentrated, with sensational notes of bouquet garni, iron (blind I might have guess 2010 Clape), violets, crushed rock and decent black and blue fruits all soaring from the glass. Full-bodied, layered and pure, with awesome freshness despite it massive size and concentration, it's a profound Cornas that needs another 3-4 years of bottle age yet will have three decades of overall longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck

This has woodsy edges, with tobacco, bay leaf and ganache notes studding the core of mulled plum, fig and blackberry fruit, followed by a lingering juniper note on the finish. A touch old-school, with a chalky feel... This has woodsy edges, with tobacco, bay leaf and ganache notes studding the core of mulled plum, fig and blackberry fruit, followed by a lingering juniper note on the finish. A touch old-school, with a chalky feel extending the pure finish. Best from 2014 through 2026. – JM

Lush and expansive, offering palate-staining dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness with air. Supple... Inky ruby. Cassis, cherry compote and cola on the pungent, highly aromatic nose and in the mouth. Lush and expansive, offering palate-staining dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness with air. Supple tannins make a late appearance and meld smoothly into this wine's densely packed dark fruit. Shows surprising vivacity for a wine of such richness.

Dense vibrant crimson. The merest hint of reduction. Very concentrated and actually a great spread of luscious, expansive fruit on the front palate following by the tightening of (purse?) strings on the finish. Very firm... Dense vibrant crimson. The merest hint of reduction. Very concentrated and actually a great spread of luscious, expansive fruit on the front palate following by the tightening of (purse?) strings on the finish. Very firm but lip smacking. Not as obviously ‘hot’ as some but well done. 17/20
