Paul Jaboulet Aine Cornas Domaine de Saint Pierre 2009
"Another huge, massive, concentrated, black-hued effort is the 2009 Cornas Domaine de St.-Pierre (500 cases) from their 12 acres of estate holdings on steep hillsides. A quintessential Cornas, it exhibits gamy black and blue fruits, huge tannins and a big, full-bodied, masculine style oozing with extract. Although aged in 10-15% new oak barrels, the wood component is buried beneath the extravagant fruit and extract."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The total area of the domaine is 11 hectares, distributed in different parcels located in the districts of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and, of course Meursault. All the vineyards were cultivated following organic agricultural practices from 1992 to 1997, at the end of this period the domaine became 100% biodynamic.
