Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, August 2014
Vibrant, with terrific, chiseled cut to the range of briar, anise, blackberry compote, bay leaf, iron and sanguine notes, all wrapped with singed alder and juniper accents on the finish. Pure and driven. Best from 2016... Vibrant, with terrific, chiseled cut to the range of briar, anise, blackberry compote, bay leaf, iron and sanguine notes, all wrapped with singed alder and juniper accents on the finish.

More pretty and elegant than the '12, the 2011 Cornas Vieilles Vignes comes from a number of old-vine parcels and was aged in 15% new French oak. It has impressive black and blue fruits, pepper, violets and wild garrigue-like aromas and flavors to go with a full-bodied, pure, layered and sexy style on the palate. Drink it over the coming decade. - Jeb Dunnuck

Dark berry and floral pastille aromas are complemented by hints of vanilla, cola and smoky Indian spices. Smooth, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense blueberry and cherry-cola flavors and a building note of smoked meat. The gently tannic finish shows impressive energy and length and a whiplash of juicy dark berries. - Josh Raynolds
