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.

  • Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas Granit 60 2010


    Fairly oaky on the nose with notes of nutmeg and vanilla over tight floral base notes. I found this to be woody and dull. On the palate, the wine felt flat and tense, badly needing some time in the cellar to calm down the hard, mineral-laden flavors. The fruit did emerge a bit on the finish, but even there the flavors were more on the spicy side... Read More

  • Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas les Terres Brulees 2006


    Nose filled with peppery, bramble fruit and grilled tones. On the palate, those aromas turn to flavors along with scorched earth and a hint of hazelnut. Feels light on the palate, but has powerful flavors. It also seems gritty, but isn't. Strong tannin. Big and flavorful.2/4/12 Read More

  • Paul Jaboulet Aîné Cornas 2001


    Vintage 2009 - Bright black cherry hue, aromas of black plum, boysenberries and vicks cough syrup; bright flavor notes of red and black stone fruits, candied cherries and dried flowers to a medium finish. Read More
