Sporting a deep inky color, the 2014 Cornas (100% Syrah aged in three- to four-year-old barrels) is a supple, sexy 2014 that has terrific, complex notes of liquid blackberries, currants, scorched earth, peppered meat and wild herbs. Rich, textured and on the fuller side of medium-bodied, it has supple, ripe tannin, a focused and fresh style, as well as a great finish. Buy a case of this beauty and drink it over the coming decade.

Opaque ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and blueberry preserves, olive and smoky minerals, enhanced by a peppery topnote. At once rich and lively, offering palate-staining dark berry and cherry cola flavors and intense back-end florality. Finishes spicy and very long, with impressive energy, subtle tannins and lingering spiciness.
Cornas is from Marcel Juge vineyard of very old vines, granite soil, all in steep slope. Major control on yield, picking at optimum ripeness. The Cornas vineyard is exclusively “ Échalats” training. The wine undergoes full alcoholic fermentation, followed by the malolactic the following spring. Then, it is aged for 14 months in oak barrels.
