2009 Allemand Horizontal. I absolutely love Allemand’s wines. Always a seamless combination of both elegance and power. Both the Chaillot and Reynard showed perfectly, with the Reynard a bit more concentrated and deep than the Chaillot. Both wines had superb intensity, focus and a wonderful texture with the signature liquid rock, violets, herbs and cassis of Allemand Cornas. Fantastic duo.

2009. Dense, tannic and nowhere near ready. Will probably outlive me.

Singular, but not extraordinary(at least for 2009).

Juicy fruit, delicious but lacking heavily compared to the Reynaud. More flower and stem with a touch of that Gamay fruit.

Dense and sappy. So much Syrah in one glass. Loved this bottle. Blackberry, horse ass (the good kind) olive and pepper abound. Will age and age..
