AOC Cornas - Les Vieilles Vignes

Available vintage: 2012

Our Cornas “Les Vieilles Vignes” comes from syrah vineyards, more than 30 years old, on decomposed granite slopes, also called “gore”.


Harvesting and vinification

Harvesting is manual.
Vinification is done in stainless steel temperature controlled vats, long maceration (4 to 5 weeks), with daily pigeage and pump over.
Ageing is 18 to 20 months long, 100% in casks (about 20% new).


Our suggestion

"The perfect companion for beef, a shoulder of young lamb in its early years, and of game or strongest meat, after several years in a good cellar."

 

The wine

"One of the superstars of the appellation (and vintage), the inky colored 2012 Cornas Les Vieilles Fontaines, which will see 24 months in 15% new French oak, is an extraordinary effort that exhibits blackberry, blueberry, liquid rock, underbrush and charred earth characteristics on the nose. Full-bodied, voluptuous and gorgeously textured, this concentrated, deep and layered effort should become approachable around age 4-5 and have two decades of longevity."
