Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas Granit 60 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Cornas Granite 60 Vieilles Vignes is even denser, revealing a black/purple color, abundant notes of blackberry fruit and hints of smoke, camphor, incense and crushed rocks. The minerality is obvious in this big, fruity, full-bodied, back-busting wine...90-93" WA 12/11 "Opaque ruby. More floral and high-pitched than the Granit 30, offering aromas and flavors of black raspberry, Asian spices and candied violet, along with intense minerality. Pure and focused, finishing with excellent clarity and floral persistence. Offes an impressive blend of richness and vivacity...93-95" IWC 3/12

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, further reinforcing the oaky impression this wine made. I’ve had several vintages of this wine and expect this to improve, but this did not impress me that much. 85pts
