It offers more iron and bloody notes (which is classic Granit) intermixed with notes of new leather, scorched earth, burning embers, and both red and black fruits. Rich, full-bodied, and tannic, it needs 4-5 years of bottle age but will be a long-lived Cornas.

Intricate notions of herbs and violets entwine blueberry fruit in this full-bodied, rich, velvety wine. It shows tremendous length and real tannic depth on the finish. Although the vines are young, they're massal selections chosen from the domaine's old vines lower down the hill, so perhaps that accounts for some of this wine's impressive quality.- JC
