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.

    Lovely minerality, soft black cherry notes with some hits of dark smoke and earth; very soft on the palette maybe even lighter than i thought but a great wine. Read More

  • Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas les Terres Brulees 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Alain Voge Cornas 2003

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed ripe dark berries, licorice, sweet spices and grilled meats. On the palate a rich, round mouth feel gave way to flavors of blackberry jam, cinnamon herbal tea and plum sauce that carried into the finish. There was a whiff of alcohol on the nose that marred the experience slightly, yet this was still a highly enjoyable wine. Read More
