A very unique and rare tasting of Cornas wines. 100% Syrah/Shiraz grown in a tiny appellation in Northern Rhone. Historically with a reputation for being tough or rustic wines, some producers show that this isnt the case, and with new modern techniques, are bringing on different interpretations of the terroir. The wines shown tonight are some incredible examples featuring Thierry Allemand, Robert Michel and his protege Vincent Paris, Noel Versat and of course the wines of Auguste Clape. This was very special.
All wines were double decanted approx 12 hours prior to tasting, bar the Jaboulet.
I was totally blown away by the quality and different styles of this fine appellation. Great to compare across decades too, with wines appealing at different ages. Thanks to the Jeroboam team for organising
