Our Cornas "Les Vieilles Vignes" comes from syrah vineyards, more than 30 years old, on decomposed granite slopes, also called "gore".
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.
"Inky ruby. Fresh raspberry and candied cherry on the nose, with cracked pepper and fresh flowers adding verve; nothing gamey about this. Brisk red fruit flavors are enlivened by suave minerals and framed by silky tannins. Finishes with excellent breadth and gentle grip. It's hard to believe that this feminine wine is a Cornas. Range: 91-94"

"Combines a polished exterior with a briary core of currant, fig and tobacco notes, all backed by well-integrated structure. The solid, chalky spine frames the lengthy finish. Really blossoms in the glass, so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2010 through 2020. 1,250 cases made. "
