Winemaker Notes

#96 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The blockbuster 2009 Cornas Empreintes appears capable of 20+ years of longevity. A black/purple color is accompanied by copious aromas of blueberries, blackberry liqueur, charcoal, graphite and subtle smoke and incense. Intense, layered, full-bodied and massive with a hint of tannins (they are largely buried by the wealth of fruit and extract), this 2009 will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring after its release and should drink well over the following two decades. Range: 93-96
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A very fleshy Cornas, with layers of plum sauce, spice cake, fig bread and cassis rolling over one another, while the anise and iron notes hang in the background for now. The finish is strong and intense. Best from 2012 through 2020. 1,500 cases made.

Eric et Joel Durand, Cornas, Rhone, France
This vineyard is owned by two brothers: Eric and Joel. Their vineyards cover 13 ha (8 ha of Saint Joseph and 5 ha of Cornas). They took over the family estate and started bottling wine in 1991. They work hard to ensure their harvests will be fully expressive of the terroir. They love wines that have personality but are still fine and elegant.
