Winemaker's Notes

Grape veriety: 100% Syrah from 70+–year-old vines.

Bouquet: Powerful, rich and complex, with aromas of black fruit and hints of chocolate and licorice.

Taste: Harmonious and elegant, "La Louvée" exhibits outstanding concentration and a long, lingering finish. Enjoyable in youth, it has the potential to mature and evolve for another two decades or more.

Serving suggestions: This Cornas pairs perfectly with beef, game, truffles and mushroom-based dishes.

"Strongly ferrous and minerally, with blackberry and blueberry fruit. There's no evidence of the fragility of some 2004 northern Rhones. This is rich, concentrated and meaty, yet creamy, with supple tannins. Very flattering, with a long finish. This should age well."
-Wine Enthusiast
