- Tasting Notes
A blend of young vine fruit, the 2016 Cornas les Chailles is a full-bodied, supple wine that offers immediate gratification. Notes of roasted meat and ripe plums come together in an open-knit, accessible format. Drink it over the next 6-7 years.

Deep lurid ruby. Blackberry, cola, smoky Indian spices and potpourri on the expansive nose. Vibrant black and blue fruit flavors are complicated by suggestions of candied violet, olive and cracked pepper. Finishes very long and appealingly sweet, featuring smooth tannins and lingering floral and spice character. I find this to be a pretty suave and pretty approachable rendition of Cornas.

Dark-chocolate and stony, graphite-like, flinty aromas and a wealth of black fruit, as well as a redder thread of plums. The palate is very suave, sturdy and balanced with rich, ripe tannins that grip the dark-stone finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink in 2020.

A bright, piercing style, with a beam of violet and iron racing forth, backed by bitter cherry and red currant coulis flavors. The finish is flecked with olive, chalk and savory details while staying very focused and pure. Best from 2021 through 2036. 1,175 cases made.
