External Reviews for Paul Jaboulet Aîné Cornas
Some lovely fruit, polished and clean, with all the attributes of a fine terroir — mineral and above all a lot of sweet, ultraripe fruit. Full-bodied, long, with plenty of toasted, smoked bacon and blackberry notes. Easier to appreciate young than many La Chapelles, but what hedonistic pleasure. Best from 2007 through 2015.
Saturated red-ruby color. Brooding aromas of black currant, licorice, gunflint and spices. Thick, dense and brooding, with sweet cassis, pepper and tobacco flavors framed and carried by firm acidity. Comes across as very ripe and broad, but this bottle at least does not show the porty character that some past vintages have displayed at the same stage. Finishes with firm tannins, hints of licorice and dark chocolate, and serious spice.
