    Intense and complex, with a slightly searing, youthful profile, the 2008 Cornas Chaillot boasts knockout aromatics of smoked meats, bacon fat, wild herbs, pepper, and violets that lead to a medium-bodied Syrah that has racy acidity, a slightly lean mid-palate, and plenty of focus and structure on the finish. Showing beautifully on the first pour, this lacks mid-palate depth with air, so while I think it will be better in 2-3 years, I wouldn't advise any long-term cellaring here. Nevertheless, it is certainly outstanding and a beautiful Cornas.

    ($78) Vivid purple. A complex bouquet offers raspberry, cherry compote, potpourri and spice cake. Deeper, darker fruits on the palate, along with suggestions of violet pastille and black pepper. Finishes taut and precise, with a lingering touch of candied flowers and nervy mineral-driven persistence.
