Critic's Notes

John Livingstone-Learmonth - Drink Rhone, ****

“**** rating … licorice features in an ebullient nose, with cassis, blue fruit present, smoky notes. The palate funnels dark, cool fruits, cassis to the fore, with roasting, toasting, firm tannins, a hint of violet. Near the finish it shows it is structured, firm Cornas, with good, clear fruit central to it. The fruit is notably active on the first half.”

Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media, 95-96

“95-96 rating … evokes an array of fresh, mineral-accented dark fruits and pungent flowers, along with suggestions of game, licorice and incense. Palate-staining, appealingly sweet, spice-laced cherry, cassis and floral pastille flavors show superb energy and a smoky mineral quality ….”

The Wine Advocate, 93-95

“93-95 rating … delicate tendrils of herbal and tea-like complexity entwined with dark, cassis and blackberry fruit. Full-bodied and rich, it seems velvety at first, then turns dusty and chewy on the lengthy finish. One for the cellar.”
