Cornas Wine

Cornas is a major appellation in the northern Rhone. Only red Cornas is made. Cornas easily approaches Hermitage and Cote-Rotie in quality and finesse. It, too, has terraced, sun-roasted slopes planted to Syrah, and produces inky, powerful wines which prefer long aging. Of course, these inhumanly steep slopes are difficult to farm, so the appellation fell into decline in the early 20th century. In the 1980s, interest in these excellent wines returned, and now, it’s a source of some of the best value in the entire region.

  • Okay, back to what we've been buying lately:  Bought two bottles of 2012 Durand Cornas Premices, pre-arrival, at $30 from K&L.  Hard to find good N. Rhone (oh, yeah it got over 90 from everybody who we scoff at or pay attention to) at that price.  I've got the 09 and 10 and might try to convince our SoCal friends to go to WineX and pick up the 1...
