It offers a classic, traditional feel in its blackberry, peppery herbs, bouquet garni and violets aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness, nicely integrated acidity and superb concentration, it's just another sensational Cornas from this vintage. Bravo to Corinne Lionnet and Ludovic Izerable! collapse

It's richly tannic and velvety at the same time, with a finish that's simultaneously drying (from tannins) and mouthwatering (from juicy fruit). Farmed organically, vinified with stems in concrete and aged in used, large-format oak, Cornas doesn't get more authentic (or better) than this!- JC collapse

Spice- and mineral accented dark berry and floral pastille scents show excellent delineation and pick up deeper licorice and olive paste nuances with air. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering juicy boysenberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors lifted by a distinct mineral flourish. Powerful yet lithe for the vintage, delivering solid finishing thrust and smooth tannins that build steadily.- JR collapse
