Paul Jaboulet Aine Cornas Domaine de Saint Pierre 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2010 Cornas Domaine de St.-Pierre is a more typical savage nearly uncivilized effort exhibiting an inky/purple color as well as lots of pepper beef blood camphor forest floor and blackberry characteristics. It is a wine of extraordinary intensity and superb concentration but it is so tannic and backward that it needs to be forgotten for a decade. Even though it is in bottle it has not evolved much since I tasted it from barrel last year. 91+ -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocat

Paul Jaboulet Aèné:
The company’s hundred or so hectares of vineyards are tended with the greatest possible care. In the northern estates of the Côtes du Rhône, the wide diversity of terroirs and the influence of micro-climates favours the production of Syrah. This is the principle variety, and the sole red grape, grown by Paul Jaboulet Aîné, while Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier are used for the white wines. ... Read more
The company’s hundred or so hectares of vineyards are tended with the greatest possible care. In the northern estates of the Côtes du Rhône, the wide diversity of terroirs and the influence of micro-climates favours the production of Syrah. This is the principle variety, and the sole red grape, grown by Paul Jaboulet Aîné, while Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier are used for the white wines. This provides the wines of each appellation with a well-defined personality. Paul Jaboulet Aîné favours traditional vineyard husbandry. Yields are restricted to between 25 and 35 hectolitres per hectare from vines that are on average 40 years old, with the most illustrious being nearly 80 years old. Canopy management, crop thinning, pruning and harvesting are all carried out by hand. Ancestral methods such as the use of hand winches and stake training of vines are still used, all of which requires a skilled, experienced workforce. When they have reached optimal maturity, the grapes are hand-harvested into 20kg crates to keep them in as good condition as possible. The company is currently undergoing sustainable agriculture qualification, which restricts the use of herbicides in the soil, favours organic fertilisers to encourage the development of micro-organisms, and allows the vines to thrust their roots deep into the ground. The vines consequently benefit from the natural and varied nourishment of the soil. This background means that the Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné winemaking team must work tirelessly, using the ancestral methods of the past to move into the future. Read less

Dark purple. Fresh dark berry and cherry-cola aromas and flavors are complicated by notes of Asian spices and licorice. Bright and racy on entry then fleshier and richer in the mid-palate with a smoky note emerging with aeration. Silky harmonious tannins frame the long sweet incisive finish. Quite elegant even polished with plenty of surprisingly immediate appeal. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
