Winemaker's Notes

"Good medium ruby. Ripe aromas of black fruits and black olive tapenade. Fat, sweet and rich, with lively violet and licorice notes and firm underlying structure. Not hugely fat but fresh and persistent. Late hint of inky licorice. From another barrel: Blueberry and blackberry aroma complicated by a hint of gunflint. Silky and elegant, with good volume and plenty of personality. Should make a very good 2000."

"The tightly-knit, inky/purple-colored 2000 Cornas Vieilles Vignes reveals sweet aromas of liquid stones, white flowers, blackberries, and cassis with a hint of wood in the background. This offering admirably reveals the appellation's terroir. Well-endowed and muscular with abundant tannin, this pure, impeccably made Cornas will be at its finest between 2006-2014."
