Grapes come from 90+-year-old vines on the steep slopes of the right bank of the Rhone. All work in the vineyards is done manually.

Firmly in the style of the vintage, this is dense, full-bodied Cornas, with plenty of fruit. Intense plum, coffee and black olive notes dominate, while the tannins are ripe and plush. Believe it or not, this is actually drinkable now, yet should age easily through at least 2025.

Wine maker notes
Grapes are de-stemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with 4 days of pre-maceration, 7 days of fermentation with a maximum temperature of 82.4F and 3 weeks of post-maceration. The wine is then aged for 18 months, 70% in new oak and 30% in one-year-old oak barrels. It is unfiltered.

Technical notes
13.8% abv

Food pairing
Pairs perfectly with steak and most game meats.
