Tasting Notes

The 2015 Cornas Vin Noir, from 100-year-old vines, is a tour de force. Crushed stone and violets set the stage for this full-bodied wine that’s loaded with cassis and plum fruit but hemmed in tightly by firm tannins. Give it at least 7 years of rest in a cool cellar.

Score: 95

Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, Maturity: 2022-2035 29 December 2017

Offering more barbecue smoke, cassis, black raspberry and charcoal aroma and flavors, the 2015 Cornas Vin Noir is a serious, concentrated, structured Cornas that has impeccable balance, crazy good purity and a great finish. Frightfully backward and tannic, it's not for those seeking instant gratification. (95-97+ Points)

Score: 95 - 97

Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 30 December 2016

Dark purple. Expansive aromas of blueberry preserves, black pepper, violet and spicecake, and hints of olive and cola in the background. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering deeply concentrated black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors lifted and brightened by a smoky mineral nuance. Chewy and appealingly sweet on the strikingly long, floral finish, which is framed by sneaky, fine-grained tannins.

Score: 92 - 95
