Gilles produces real deal Cornas.
Allemand's 1998 has an intense and rigorous architecture. There's a wild profile with dark berry fruit, smoke, and a seriously complex presentation of spices and florality.
Allemand takes Cornas to a level of expressiveness and finesse that no one can compete with. His 2013 Reynard is a powerful example of this.
If Allemand is Cornas as suave, fine and bright, Clape shows the region's dark side, wonderfully bone-crushing and savory. Clape’s Cornas gets to the beating heart of the appellation’s intensely dark and savory side. The wines are wildly complex and utterly compelling expressions of Cornas.
Allemand's wines are very special. It's hard not to agree with Vinous Media's Josh Raynolds when he writes: "let me state unequivocally that there is no estate in the entire Rhône Valley making finer wines.”
When Thierry Allemand was a young man, he worked at Michel's domaine and describes it as a formative experience.
I'll keep this short. Allemand's reputation is too big, and the quantities are too small to drag this out. Allemand's wines are very special. It's hard not to agree with Vinous Media's Josh Raynolds when he writes: "let me state unequivocally that there is no estate in the entire Rhône Valley making finer wines.”
Of the new generation of Cornas producers, Guillaume Gilles stands out. Gilles got his start working for Chave and Robert Michel, the legendary old-school Cornas producer who also served as a mentor to Thierry Allemand.
Lionnet's wines are uncompromisingly honest and wild expressions of the Northern Rhône. Neal Rosenthal was introduced to Lionnet by his Côte-Rôtie producer, Bernard Levet. Levet is certainly a good jumping off point for getting a sense of Lionnet's wines.
Guillaume Gilles is one of the most exciting young, traditionally oriented producers in the entire Northern Rhône. Gilles worked at Chave and Robert Michel. The latter is one of the grand old legends of the Northern Rhône and where Thierry Allemand began his winemaking career.
The 2016 Cuvée Renaissance is poised to be one of the best vintages of the wine that we've tasted in the past decade. Clape is one of the benchmarks of Cornas, renowned for his bone-crushing and long-lived style.
Clape really nailed the 2011 vintage. I was very happy to come across this modest parcel recently.
Clape’s Cornas gets to the beating heart of the appellation.
"Let me state unequivocally that there is no estate in the entire Rhône Valley making finer wines.” -Josh Raynolds Allemand's are very special wines.
Not much needs to be said about Thierry Allemand.
“Grab northern Rhône 2015 reds with both hands.” -Jancis Robinson The 2015 vintage will cement Vincent Paris' reputation as one of the most exciting young winemakers of the Northern Rhône.
For over half a century, Auguste Clape’s wines have captured so much of what's essential in Cornas. Clape’s Cornas gets to the beating heart of the appellation’s intensely dark and savory side. The wines are wildly complex and utterly compelling expressions of Cornas.
This is Cornas like you've never tasted it before. It's hard to imagine an expression of Cornas so faithful to the appellation, yet so removed from its usual expression.
La Geynale is one of the great vineyards of Cornas.
Every time that I've come across a well-priced offer for Clape's 2013 Cornas, I've jumped on it. Today's offer represents a modestly sized parcel of the wine that I've managed to put together since our last offer in January.
It's been impossible to take notice of Vincent Paris. He's one of the most talked about young winemakers in the Northern Rhône.
Allemand's Cornas are some of the most singular expressions of Cornas around. No one competes in terms of expressiveness and finesse.
