Very good syrah for the price. Gives a nice intro the Clape wines and is quite tasty.

Medium red color. Pungent nose, powerful and rich: wood smoke, raw beefsteak, menthol, olives, tar, dried cherry. On arrival, medium-low tannin and balanced acidity. In the mouth, everything from the nose repeats, with the fruit taking a more prominent position than the smoke and meat elements. Big mint and menthol in the mouth. Good finish but the empty glass is left with a coating that exudes an aromatic powerhouse after just an hour's air. Lovely. Bottle #11 of twelve.

Remarkably young for a 16 year old wine. This was put up against other aged northern rhones from flagship producers (hermitage and cote rotie) and this was by far the youngest expression. Hardly any tertiary elements were showing, though this did not impact how pleasurable the wine is today. I'd recommend holding probably another 10 years to see the full potential of this wine.

Served during a tasting on the four major french grapes. This wine is from the young wines of the highly rated Cornas by this producer. After being closed for the past few years it now has entered the drinking window. Nose of red and dark fruit with torrefaction, spices, leather. On the palate it has very present fruit, nothing austere here, and is met with excellent tannins at the finish. The peppery notes of Rhone Syrah are tame and not overbearing here as well. A great northern Rhone wine that does not break the bank. Decant for 1h.

PnP. A lot to like here: classic but restrained/refined Cornas flavours. Sappy, spicy red fruit, slightly dry, woody (not a fault though) tannins shut down the sweet, rich core of fruit halfway through. Needs decanting, or better yet, another 5-10years -- but classic norhern rhone syrah combining animal notes and fruit.

Purchased this bottle in Paris back in March and waited a few months for bottle shock. Decanted three hours ahead of a feast of seared smoky BBQ pork loin, chicken, roasted garlic potatoes, asparagus, and watermelon feta salad. Sappy, purple, cloudy Crimson. The nose is concentrated and extraordinary, bringing fresh cut violets, roses, lavender, cherry blossoms, spearmint, white pepper, dried herbs, smoked bacon, sweet cherry tobacco, campfire, and candied raspberries. The palate is medium-full, square, broad, and juicy, bringing loads of Manhattan cherries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, sweet tobacco, horse saddle, charcoal, motor oil, dried herbs, roasted garlic, and nice candied strawberries into the finish, which lasts 45-seconds with good weight and thick yet delicate tannins. Drinking good now but this will evolve into all kinds of wonderful things in the decades ahead. Drink through 2040.

Loved it - had it against a 2009 Craggy Range Le Sol and the Cornas was preferred. Much better the next day. Really really enjoyed ! Was last bottle. Othes left are all the full Cornas.

Surprisingly unevolved and primary. The sides are round and smooth and the structure is not really showing, both attributes of age, and yet the palate is still young and primary. I would cellar this for a few years with the hope of a more expressive, complex palate, but the smoothness of the palate and the absence of notable structure suggest that this may not be one to cellar. Try in 3 or 4 years. Racines with Sarah and the Sugarmen.

Raid Len's Cellar #6: Stemmy, floral, cherry and pepper aromas. Finely detailed palate, great texture and acidity - I admire the restraint behind the fruit. Really lovely wine and will improve over the medium term.

This puppy has got some character! Pronounced Northern Rhone notes of cracked black pepper and cloves but then also a huge personality of red berry flavours, almost strawberry-yoghurt, a bright red berry profile, but it didn't seem like malo-yoghurt - it really felt like just the character of the wine and terroir and not something winemaking related. I suppose you could call it floral; lillacs, lillies, lavender. Very intense. It doesn't sound that unique in writing, but it really was. This should be easy to identify blind as it really has a character dissimilar to most other wines, even from the Northern Rhone. Then of course a rather tight, youthful structure with present acidity and quite some tannins to let you know that this is Syrah and France. Highly enjoyed this.

Nose take a while to fully open up. Dark fruit, dusty, with faint mint, licorice and menthol in the background. Tannins still stick on the back of the palate. A well made Cornas with sufficient age, but lacks the refinement of a better vintage. Decanted for one hour, consumed over the following two.

Agape chez nous (Chablis, Bordeaux, Cornas,....) (Bernex): Carafé durant 2 heures. Couleur violine avec très peu de traces d'évolution. D'abord réticent, le nez a livré de superbes arômes de thym, de groseilles et d'autres épices avec une petite touche mentholée. En bouche, le vin se montre très long, d'une superbe structure avec beaucoup de finesse. La finale est dense, quelques tanins se montrant encore bien présents.
À boire durant les 10 prochaines années.

Classical and elegant style northern Rhône Syrah. Red fruits and minerals, firm acidity and slightly drying, sticky tannin and firm bitterness. Overall a complex and elegant wine with still plenty of future. No problem cellaring this for another 5+ years. So until 2017+. 90 – 91+ for tonight.

Drank with a Charolais beef burger. First pretty closed but opening up with some air. Beautiful nose of dark berries, charcoal, raw meat, pepper, leather and crushed rocks. With some time in the glass notes of cigar tobacco appear. On the palate it's mainly dark fruit again but also smoke smoky minerality and peppery notes. It's pretty full-bodied with medium-high acidity and medium-high tannin that is present but ripe. Good length. A textbook Cornas from this great producer. Give it 2 - 3 more years in bottle to open up some more. (93+)

Elegance, not power. Red fruit, not black. Silky, not rough. Somewhat more like an old-school St Emilion than the preconception about Cornas, but extremely pleasant in a classical style.
