Cool to taste next to Clape. Clearly a more open and immediate style that has the benefit of some bottle age. Nose is leather, asian spice, cured meat, black plum. Palate is broad with more length and less complexity. I like JLC's wines and they are versatile entry points to the Rhône . Maybe a little less cerebral but certainly user-friendly and available.

A little too tannic for my taste, check back in 3-5 years.

Very young and intense nose. Nice fruit at the front of the palate but a bit sharp and abrupt on the finish. High acid

Cornas with a little bottle age is so special. So much earth and spice and the right amount of funk and Brett.

Was expecting more. High alc. Deep rich purple color. Would consider it a new world style. Subdued nose. Power in the mouth but driven by alcohol. Tannins develop nicely and the finish is short.
