Killer notes of wild herbs, iron, smoked earth, liquid violets, and bloody blue fruits all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, structured, impeccably balance 2017. With plenty of tannins, yet abundant opulence and hedonistic appeal, drink this sexy Cornas over the coming 15+ years. This cuvée comes from six separate parcels (from 5 lieux-dits) and spent 18 months in 4- to 10-year-old demi-muids.

Powerful, deeply perfumed aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, licorice and olive, along with a sexy floral overtone. Coats the palate with juicy blackberry, boysenberry, violet pastille and spicecake flavors, while a smoky mineral flourish adds vibrant lift. Chewy tannins shape an impressively long, mineral-accented finish that shows very good power and spicy thrust. -- Josh Raynolds

It's medium-bodied, lacking the depth and richness of the appellation's best wines while still showing genuine regional character. Drink it on the young side.- JC
