Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"Dark purple. Displays an array of mineral- and spice-accented dark fruit and floral scents, along with suggestions of olive, licorice and pipe tobacco. Densely packed blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors slowly flesh out and become spicier and more lively through the back half. Powerful tannins add grip to a strikingly long, smoky finish that emphatically repeats the mineral and spice notes." -Vinous


D 95
"Spicy char notes on the nose. In the mouth its full-bodied and ripe but not excessive, really mouthfilling and full of energy. Intense and concentrated with powerful tannins. It's fairly potent in alcohol for a 2020, but the overall effect is balance, freshness, purity and length. Domaine Lionnet is one of the unsung heroes of Cornas, and an organic estate."

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

From a southeast-facing one-hectare parcel of selection massale Syrah, planted between 2008 and 2011, in the vineyard of Saint-Pierre at 380 meters altitude. The combination of high altitude and pure granite soil (hence the name) yields a taut, racy Cornas of remarkable focus and mineral purity. This offers penetrating spicy aromatics and intense stoniness on the palate, with a sense of real concentration that is remarkable given the vines’ youth. This energetic and vivacious wine offers a slightly more easygoing counterpart to the Lionnet’s “Terre Brûlée” Cornas.
