Dark purple. Powerful, mineral-tinged aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and olive. Chewy, tightly focused cassis and blueberry flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and become smokier with air. Quite rich but boasts excellent energy thanks to its bright minerality. Finishes sappy and very long, with sneaky tannins and a lingering violet note.

Starting with his 2011 Cornas, it's a rocking wine in the vintage that's still showing every bit as well as it did on release. Massive minerality, violets, bloody meat and sweet blackcurrant and black raspberry-like fruit all emerge here, and it's fabulously textured and silky on the palate. It will be interesting to see if this ever shuts down, but right now, it's a great drink. If you have multiple bottles, give one a try.
