Cornas, Vieilles Vignes, 2021

5 cases
Equiv. £42.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

The Vieilles Vignes cuvee hails from the upper plots at 200-300m in the heart of the Cornas appellation, with higher density planting, averaging 60 years of age. Dark fruits with some pepper and stony salty notes, more mineral, stimulating and sinewy, with a brisk, cool acidity and nervy finish. Fantastic. A blend of five plots: Combe, Patou, La Côte, Thézier, Les Mazards and Chaillot, the wine spends 20 months in barrique (15% new) and will be bottled in June 2023. Typically, it sees 20% whole bunches, but that was reduced to around 5-10% in 2021.
