Deep and dense showing dark fruit, black olive and fresh violets with massive concentration, saturating texture and a searing intensity. Tannins are pretty prevalent right now but this has all the substance and structure in this vintage to be a perfect bottle with sufficient age. After a 3 hour decant is when it really shines. What I love about Allemand is similar to Comte Liger Belair in Burgundy, you can drink them on release in addition to holding to age. Special wines.

Allemand nightcap! From the terrific wine list at CUT Vegas. Allemand is truly one of my absolute favorite producers and this 07 Reynard from the master was superb. It’s deep, powerful and has a searing intensity. Ethereal and layered with dark fruit, coal smoke, black olive and violets.

There is superb concentration along with a firm tannic structure that is beginning to soften as it approaches its drinking apogee. It’s exceptionally well balanced with an incredibly long, palate saturating and harmonious finish with vivid energy and an elegant purity. WowWw. ☄️

Effortless balance of power versus restraint.
A generous lockdown celebration for a great worker moving to new things on his birthday.

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.

Wow! Always spectacular when a wine delivers exactly what you remember of it.

Dusty on the outside but pristine on the inside. I’ve tasted this a handful of times over the last 15 years and it’s developing at a glacier-like pace. Still bright in colour and long and structured with red and blue fruits foiled by herbs and some stemmy notes. Classic Allemand and my favourite of the ‘90s along with ‘94 & ‘99 - 1995

Very ripe blueberries on the nose, bold jammy and tannic on the palate with blackberries and blueberries. Could do with a more aging.
