I was looking for a Cornas and GR recommended this awesome Rhone that has family written all over it. "Wine growers from father to son since 1481"! There is a lot that emerges from this glass, and you just have to try it once to love it forever. Had this with M. at PJ.

Really great. Lovely dark ruby color. Dark berry, pepper, and funk that disappears with air. Cherry syrup on the nose and palate. Light, medium finish. Recommend!

Elegant, focused, balanced, continually evolving. A great bottle of wine with a grilled veal chop.
