While Cornas may strike some as an odd place to look for elegance, Chez Allemand is not. These are, to my mind, the most compelling Syrahs made in the world today. Beautifully pure and fragrant with remarkable balance, they are wines that are almost impossible to keep one’s hands off of, if it wasn’t for the price.
Allemand Cornas $85
