    November 10, 2010 - I think this might be the first vintage of Allemand's sublime cornas commercially sold in the UK. Only one cuvee until 1991. This was delicious, black fruit, spice and a little pepper on the nose, maybe a hint of mint. Rich slightly creamy inn the mouth, smooth fruit, well balanced. Still a delight to drink.

    November 8, 2010 - Cornas (28-50, London): Bright ruby. Really vibrant. Lovely nose, more burgundian than cornas. Surprisingly fat and leggy in the glass. Again, quite burgundian palate though more acidity and alcohol than burg. Seems to be getting more acidic. Doesn't quite live up to th einitial premise of the nose. ***

    July 29, 2010 - Still drinking well, pure precise fruit, very smooth, and intense concentration of fruit. Wow a very pleasant surprise
