Back-Vintage Allemand:
2006 Cornas Chaillot

Posted by Ian McFadden

Allemand has a magic touch with Cornas.

They are wines of elegance, detail, and beautiful transparency.

Today, I'm happy to offer Allemand's 2006 Cornas Chaillot for $324.95 per bottle. 

In 2009, Vinous Media's Josh Raynolds commented that "There's pinot-like delicacy and precision to this wine that's really intriguing." The wine continues to possess this quality. 

Allemand's 2006 Cornas Chaillot is pulsating with energy. There's finely etched, bright red fruits accentuated by flowers, spice, and smoky minerals. The 2006 vintage produced wines with stuffing and power. Allemand was able to harness the vintage and create something crystal clear and finely balanced.

The 2006 Chaillot is a testament to Allemand's incredible ability to render ultra-focused, lifted, and silken Cornas. Allemand is simply without peer. I'm very happy to be able to offer an example that's just beginning to enter its drinking window.
