Cornas "Les Vieilles Vignes" comes from Syrah vineyards, more than 30 years old, on decomposed granite slopes, also alled "gore". This wine is a lighter style, with some good violet and dark red fruit.
The perfect companion for beef, a shoulder of young lamb in its early years, and of game or strongest meat, after several years in a good cellar.
The 2010 Cornas Vieilles Vignes has off-the-charts richness as well as an extraordinarily precise nose of blackberry and blueberry jam intermixed with cassis, charcoal, lead pencil shavings, pen ink and acacia flowers. A wine of exceptional intensity with a multidimensional mouthfeel and a 55-second finish, this quintessential Cornas should drink well for 20-30 years.
