Winemaker Notes

The color is an intense garnet red. In its youth, this wine has strong cassis aromas. With time, the fruit aromas gradually fade, giving way to hints of pepper and licorice. The palate is structured and has the strongly defined flavors that are typical of this terroir.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Cornas Chante Perdrix is all of that, but slightly softer because of the style of the vintage. It is hard to say that any Cornas can be opulent because the tannins are often off the charts, but this 2009 has a voluptuous opening on the palate before the tannins begin to ratchet up. Inky/purple-hued, layered and full-bodied, it offers notes of smoked meats, duck, Chinese black tea, blackberries and licorice. It is an enormously inky, thick wine that needs to be forgotten for 5-6 years and drunk over the following 20-25 years.

V 90
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Dark purple. Aromas of cherry compote and cassis are brightened by a zesty mineral quality. Rich but lithe, offering gently sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors and a biting note of cracked pepper. Shows a touch of smokiness on the seamless, nicely persistent finish.
