Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 99+

I can't say the same thing about the 2010 Cornas, as it's crazily backwards, concentrated and structured, and needs some bottle age to round into form. Nevertheless, the incredible quality is present in its purity, focus, full-bodied richness and awesome finish. Give it another 3-4 years and enjoy it over the following 15-20 years (if not more).

Wine Spectator | Rating: 97

A rock-solid and well-built wine, with a frame of charcoal and tar around a core of dark plum, blackberry and black currant fruit, revealing loads of tobacco, singed bay leaf and graphite notes in reserve. This should age beautifully, showing excellent range, character and definition.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

Inky purple. Heady, complex aromas of black raspberry, potpourri, smoky minerals and Indian spices. Displays a riot of black and blue fruit flavors that show uncanny energy for their depth and power. Picks up exotic allspice and star anise nuances with air, along with a touch of salty olive. Finishes on an emphatic mineral note, with remarkable focus, thrust and length.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
