Cornas Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent 2011

Opaque jet-ruby, silk-textured and clinging to the glass, this has a beguiling nose, dark, smoky, spiced and peppery. Warm fruitcake comes to the fore, inviting and haunting, reflected on the palate which has a lovely concentration, black fruit compote, cassis and fennel, complemented by a persistent, clearly defined, briny, mineral focus. Power and elegance make for a heady combination, stylish throughout. A very fineCornas which owes much to that old vine fruitconcentration.

"A very serious Cornas that will repay cellaring but has the poise to be enjoyable before too long, a very fine wine."
