"Lurid ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of ripe blackberry, olive and violet are lifted by a vibrant mineral overtone. Concentrated yet lively on the palate, showing impressive focus to black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors that pick up a five-spice powder accent as the wine stretches out. Marries power and finesse with a sure hand and finishes very long and sweet, featuring lingering dark berry character and dusty tannins that sneak in late." -Vinous
"The 2015 Cornas Granit 60 blends three different parcels. Old vines are fermented whole cluster, accounting for 30% to 40% of the total. This is very much Cornas—dark and bloody with hints of crushed stones and plummy fruit. It’s firm and austere as Cornas can be but ripe at the same time. Give it several years in the cellar, and drink it over the next decade and a half."
