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.

  • 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

  • Les Barcillants Cornas 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Bought one bottle for $27 in 2008 at Gordons in Waltham MA. Drank it in August 2011. It held up well, lots of structure, spicy, fruity and with a good finish. A decent Rhone, but not cheap. Looked in Parker's 'Wines of the Rhone Valley' and he doesn't rate this one. Read More
