Superb deep black cherry color. Complex and elegant floral aromas of violets, and black fruit with a hint of vanilla. Powerful, structured notes of black fruit, herbs, white pepper and blueberry on the palate.
Delicious with game such as duck, hare or pigeon but also perfect with a roasted entrecote steak.
"Shows a lovely savory hint, with green olive and tobacco notes wrapping around serious chalky grip. The core of butter, cherry, red currant and blackberry fruit sits in the background for now. Dense and vinous, this is driven by minerality, and should age wonderfully as the fruit comes forward. Best from 2015 through 2027."
"Inky ruby. Blackberry preserves and cherry-cola on the deeply scented nose and in the mouth. Weighty but lively, showing impressive concentration and a slow-building floral pastille quality. Becomes spicier with air and shows excellent clarity and focus. Dusty tannins give grip to the finish, which strongly echoes the blackberry note."

"This shows more finely detailed aromas than the 2009 - violets and cracked pepper accent dark fruit - but less pure richness and concentration. It's still a full-bodied, dense expression of Cornas, with bright acids highlighting plum and black olive notes. "
