Winemaker's Notes

Deep garnet red coloring, with a nose of small black berries and liquorice. In the mouth, fine and abundant tannins, freshness and length. Its potential for aging could be from 15 to 20 years.

The perfect companion for beef, a shoulder of young lamb in its early years, and of game or strongest meat, after several years in a good cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"Really juicy, with red cherry, currant and raspberry fruit layered with racy mineral and enticing floral notes. Long and tangy on the finish, with great drive. Best from 2010 through 2023."
93 Points

"The 2005 Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes is an inky blue/purple color with an extraordinary nose of scorched earth, acacia flowers, blackberry, and new saddle leather. As the wine sits in the glass some blueberry nuances emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated, powerful wine that looks set for 15 or more years of life. 91-93 – Drink 2007-2022."
92 Points

"Dark red. Flamboyant red berry and spicy cherry aromas with a floral topnote. Deep and rich, with sweet, liqueur-like red fruit flavors and a suave, velvety texture. The tannins here are very nicely integrated. Finishes sweet and long, with a lingering black cherry note. "
