Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 97 ()

The 2015 Cornas Pur Noir rivals Clape’s Cornas for wine of the vintage from that appellation. Extraordinarily rich and complex, it offers hints of grilled red plums, roasted meat and mocha, enormous concentration and masses of ripe tannins. Yet despite the power, there’s a sense of elegance to this, and the dark fruit flavors come through on the lengthy finish. It’s a terrific effort and relatively affordable if you can find it. The price at the caveau when I visited was 80 euros.

Vinous - Score: 91-94 (2016 Mar.)

Opaque ruby. Assertive blackberry, licorice, olive and incense scents take on a subtle floral quality with aeration. Sappy and broad on the palate, offering potent dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors and a hint of peppery spices. Closes with repeating licorice and dark berry character, mounting tannins and excellent persistence.
