Réserve Valais Cornalin 2016

Deep, dense. Short fruit up front, cranberry? tart blackberry? but then baking spices and forest earth into a decent tannic finish. — 2 months ago

Vallée D'Aoste Cornalin 2016

Like many Valle d’Aoste single grape wines, the color is part of the enjoyment. Purple-red in the glass, with aromas of pepper and vanilla. Low acidity, but with very high tannins, and red berry flavors. Wonderful! — 5 months ago

Torrette Superiore Valle d'Aosta Petit Rouge Blend 2016

Interesting Pinot Nero from the mountains of Valle D’Aosta. Red berry and baking spice aromas. Concentrated cherry and black tea flavors. Smooth tannins and medium finish. Pleasantly surprised by the QPR of this delicious Pinot. — 9 months ago

Chateau Lichten Cornalin Blend 2018

This is not a straight Cornalin, it is an assemblage. « Assemblage de cépages nobles, Elevé en foudre de chêne suisse» and in Swiss oak rather than French. The Cornalin and Humane Rouge blend well with the Syrah. There is a spicyness that leads to a soft but medium long finish. — 2 months ago

Grosjean Frères

Torrette Petit Rouge Blend 2016

A blend of 80% Petit Rouge with the rest from Vien de Nus, Doucet, Fumin, and Mayolet - grapes I’m totally blind to. It’s beautiful and speaks the language of the rustic Italian countryside. It has the power, transparency, and boldness of Nebbiolo, but with cool dark berries instead of bright cherries and leather. — 6 months ago

Sounds awesome.

Maison Gilliard

Trésors de Famille Cornalin

Nice full-bodied Swiss red wine from the Valais region. Cornalin is an interesting red grape, allegedly from Northern Italy origins. Dark fruits dominate, with a distinctive earthiness and some anise on the finish. Very nice. — a year ago
