Expert Reviews

    "Interestingly, the 2009 Cornas Champelrose is slightly more voluptuously textured and softer. However, I wonder if its sexy display of cassis fruit and extravagant richness is hiding more tannin than is obvious? In any event, it is a prodigious Cornas possessing all the pepper, smoked game, blackberry, cassis, burning ember and scorched earth characteristics one could desire. This rich, full-bodied 2009 should be a singular Cornas to drink over the next 15+ years."
