Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

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.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

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.

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.
