Decanter, 95 Points

Made entirely from lieu-dit La Geynale this year. Clean, fresh and pure, with dark chocolate and cassis. Has the great searing crystalline power of the site, with a salty acidity. Full of life and energy, with fine but gently serrated tannins. Not hugely concentrated or weighty, but it really attacks the palate with thrilling impact. Whole-bunch fermented, matured in barriques and demi-muids of between three and eight previous uses. This cuvée is a selection of their best barrels." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Nothing fancy when it comes to winemaking at Domaine Verset where during the maceration & fermentation process the cap is punched down daily with an added pump-over, keeping the cap moist while ensuring the gentle extraction of tannins and fruit. In the past, Emmanuelle’s forefathers might have punched down the cap several times a day, producing wines of higher dry extract that needed years to resolve. This more gentle cuvaison results in plenty of structure that is coated with a more approachable range of aromatics making this a stunning Cornas after “just” 5-10 years of cellaring. The wine is aged in mostly neutral 225-400L barrels for up to 22 months before bottling without fining or filtration. It is normally aged in barrel an additional 6-8 months longer than her “regular” Cornas bottling.

Alcohol: 14%
