Back-Vintage Allemand: 2016 Allemand Cornas Reynard

Posted by Ian McFadden

Allemand is one of the most gifted and thoughtful winemakers we know.

He is making some of the purest, most refined, and most expressive Syrah available today.

Today, I'm happy to offer a very modest parcel of Allemand's 2016 Cornas Reynard.

This is one of our favorite vintages for Allemand and the northern Rhône in general. It has everything: clarity, balance, and concentration. As time has gone by, Allemand's 2016s have impressed us more and more. 

Given the quantities, I'm hesitant to write this, but Allemand's 2016 Reynard is brilliant. It's clear and precise, with ravishing aromatics and a gorgeous texture. It's packed with complexity, a bright profile, and serious lift.

I'm very happy to be able to offer this, but I should underscore that it's a modest one. I doubt these bottles will stick around for very long.
