Tasting

Colour : deep, black hue
Nose : very black, complex and slightly reductive on
the nose. The wine shows notes of ripe, wild black fruit,
which are then joined by notes of graphite, carbon and
soot.
Mouth : massive on entry to the palate with tight,  ne tannins
and lovely mineral tautness. Overall, the wine gives a sensation
of volume, is full-bodied on the palate, well-structured,
meaty and crisp. This is a powerful, distinguished Cornas,
which shows a great deal of balance and  nesse.
