It has that raw, blood and iron Cornas character, backed by some slightly earthy, resinous scents. Full-bodied, it has a lovely freshness on the palate. It's mineral and tannic, bristling and writhing, with significant but not oversized savoury tannins on the finish. A good pick this year, especially as it will be good in its youth but also age well.

The finish is flecked with olive, chalk and savory details while staying very focused and pure. Best from 2021 through 2036. 1,175 cases made.-JM

Whispers of leather and an intense granitic backdrop, however, confirm the producer's trademark complexities. Enjoyed now, it's vibrant and freshly fruited but should gain greater mineral and savory complexities through 2036.

It offers an exotic bouquet of violets, black and blue fruits, gamey meats, incense, and bouquet garni. It's medium to full-bodied, rich, beautifully textured, and layered, with the charm to drink today and the balance and class to keep for a decade or more. It's a rich, powerful Cornas from 2016.

Blackberry, cola, smoky Indian spices and potpourri on the expansive nose. Vibrant black and blue fruit flavors are complicated by suggestions of candied violet, olive and cracked pepper. Finishes very long and appealingly sweet, featuring smooth tannins and lingering floral and spice character. I find this to be a pretty suave and pretty approachable rendition of Cornas. -- Josh Raynolds
