About

93-95

"The fabulous 2011 Cornas Granite 30 is one of the great wines of the vintage. Elegant, with a black/blue color, sweet tannin and loads of spring flowers, crushed rocks, smoked game and blackberry fruit, this textured, loaded, supple, accessible 2011 should drink nicely for 15 or more years."

94 Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Moving to the 2011s, these are all superb and possess classic Cornas characteristics without any rusticity or coarseness (which is becoming more the norm in the appellation than not). Layered and reasonably approachable, the 2011 Cornas Granit 30 possesses fantastic notes of violets, crushed rock, plum, blackberry and spring flowers to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich, yet elegant and seamless feel on the palate. Give it a couple years and enjoy it through 2026."
