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.

  • Cornas Syrah 1997


    Controversial. That will be the best word to describe this wine. It has gone through many phases in the bottle and last time I tried it (this year) I discovered a totally changed wine. We open the bottle for a mere 24 hours before giving it a try! It filled up the room with its scents and needed that much time to untighten...Leathery, smoky, min... Read More

  • Tardieu-Laurent Cornas Coteaux 1998


    Simply one of the best red wines I have ever tasted. (2002). Tried another bottle 2 years later, but this wasn't as charming and meaty, with hints of steakblood, a good stouw and off course the dark purple lichorise blackberry taste, as the first one. Read More

  • Acc99 Auguste Clape Cornas 1999


    One of my favourite Cornas and the best vintage I tasted from Clape ones: rich, mineral,kind of under forest notes, slight smoky on the palate. Structure, complexity, not tough as some other Cornas can be. A great example of this small but very qualitative area. Read More

  • Michel Perraud Cornas Vieilles Vignes le Vignon 2000


    Dark red with browning tints. Earthy, with notes of black cherry, blackberry, saddle leather, hints of barnyard and white truffle. Smooth tannins and a long, smooth finish. A wine that drinks way above its price range. Read More

  • Noël Verset Syrah Cornas 2000


    Verset is the Patriarch of Cornas. His wines are elegant, incredibly well balanced, and built to age but accessible even when young. Great tannis, lots of deep berry notes, and hints of chocolate. He still makes his own wine in a small garage. Read More
