I bought three bottles of this from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk for £31 and I have just finished drinking the first.Cornas is an appellation in the northern Rhone valley which is 100%syrah and Paul Jaboulet Aine is a well known negociant operating in this area.I have been told that Cornas is at its best at between 10 and 15 years old so this 1997 should be spot on.It is a wine that definitely needs to be opened an hour or two before drinking and the overwhelming impression is of intense,in your face,fruit.The second half of the bottle on the second day was a little softer but subtle and delicate are not adjectives needed to describe this.I liked it.

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, minty, herbal, aromatic, such a complex wine! Full of suprises on the palate, with a spicy tone that unveil more fruit on the back of the mouth. Big, very big, it last for a good 30 seconds! Not a typical La Chapelle, but a wine that will be enjoyable for another 15 years at least! QC http://www.questionofwine.blogspot.com
