These bottles are hard to part with.
Allemand takes Cornas to a level of expressiveness and finesse that no one can compete with.
The 2016 Reynard is dynamite.
At this point, our love of the 2016 vintage in the northern Rhône is well chronicled. The vintage is so deep, balanced, and transparent that the only comparisons in the past decade are 2010 and 2013.
The 2016 Reynard offers a staining presence and a walk-on-tip-toe finesse. There's a beautiful texture and a breathtaking precision.
Allemand is one of the most gifted and thoughtful winemakers we know. The 2016 Reynard represents Allemand in prime form.

Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media: "Brilliant purple. Dark fruit, floral and spice qualities on the hugely perfumed, expansive nose, along with suggestions of incense, olive and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with powerful, youthfully concentrated blueberry, cassis, spicecake and violet pastille flavors that are given spine and lift by a core of zesty acidity. Lingers with outstanding tenacity on the sharply delineated, floral-driven finish, which is shaped by chewy, slow-building tannins."
