2010 Domaine Durand Cornas Premices
- Northern Rhône
Community Tasting Notes 12
May 16, 2015 - Coming across as modern in style, Durand's 2010 Cornas exhibits gobs of dark fruit with sweet tannins. Classic Northern Rhone animal funk is detectable on the nose, but it easily gets buried in wine’s rich fruitiness. This young Cornas shows freshness that is elevated by its pine tree forest note.
Many solid underlying elements are apparent, yet they don't mold together in harmony, perhaps due to the young age of the wine or the warm weather, so the judgment is reserved for now. My next bottle may turn out to be 91-93 points quality, but I will not bet on it for at least three years.

December 26, 2014 - Consistent and low outstanding. Great aromatics. Dark red and blue fruit, and,.......my favorite: road tar after a teenager builds a fire on pavement.

December 25, 2014 - This is the first opened of six that I purchased. Just beginning to come into its own, this is a big, concentrated Syrah with great complexity and a spicy finish. I'm looking forward to watching its development with the other five bottles.

July 30, 2014 - - Crimsom color with medium forming legs and aromas of tobacco and blackberry. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of blackberry and prune with a medium body. Flabby texture with a medium finish.
