Dark with purple undertones. On the nose, intense on notes of violet, black fruit and spices, black pepper and licorice. On the mouth, the wine is round, full-bodied, with huge finesse and elegant tannins. A very fresh wine.
"One of two cuvees of Vinsobres, the 2011 Vinsobres Les Cornuds is a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah. Keep in mind, the Perrins now own 125 acres in Vinsobres. This wine, grown in a vineyard at 400 meters altitude, is deep, rich, full-bodied, with loads of tannin and rather tart acids, but that gives the wine more precision and freshness. It is a blockbuster wine.
