A quick glass of this, four bottles of which are the makeweights on my Christmas reserves case.
This is stunning for the money. Brilliantly authentic. Could have been young Cornas on first sip, just impossibly tight, but opens up with air. It is, as exhibition wines are meant to be, very typical and in this case frankly a bit feral, with blood and olive notes alongside the blackcurrant, but huge kudos here for sourcing something that is a testament to both terroir and vintage. It won’t be to everyone’s taste.
