Delicious bargain-basement Cornas. Intense granitic minerality, overlaying some classic beef blood and dark blackberry scents. Rich in the mouth, with a nice balance of savory minerality and fruit. Nice acidity and integrated tannins. Good length.

Sharp, forest floor, raspberry and earth. Made me want something deeper than my cassoulet...weird.

Great value Cornas. Deep and funky. Probably better in 3-5 years.

The aging potential here is serious. Great now but with time this will be stunning.

Ripe and still laden with a lot of baby fat. Richly textured with a rather diminutive northern Rhône character at this point. Plum sauce, dark chocolate, candied violets, vanilla cream.
