Simply spectacular, this is a ripe expression of the small, Northern Rhone region with the signature smokiness and accents of bacon fat and sage. Already gorgeous, this one has a rich future ahead of it; you can expect it to gain even more depth and aromatic intensity over another decade plus.

Wine Enthusiast

Intensely fruity and glossy in mouthfeel, this supple Syrah is packed with flavors of cassis preserve and plum. A ripe expression of Cornas, it maintains the classic signature too, a smokiness accentuated by hints of bacon fat, ore and sage. Vibrant acidity and fine, gripping tannins lend firm structure. Gorgeous already the wine will meld, gain depth and perfume through 2037 and hold further.
