Domaine Lionnet, Cornas Terre Brulee, 2016

$59.99
Of today's Cornas producers, Lionnet is one of the most soulful, the most old-fashioned. It's whole cluster, old barrels, "leave-alone wine-making" as John Livinstone-Learmonth (JLL) puts it. The wine was in the past a little too "soulful" for some, but since about 2012 the wines have come much cleaner and more pure (the daughter's touch, apparently). The 2016 Cornas is positively Verset-like.
