2009 Cornas, Les Vieilles Fontaines, Alain Voge

Made from the fruit from 80-year-old vines and spending two years in 30% new oak, this has to be the finest wine produced in Cornas. Closed and brooding at the moment, but contact with air brings meaty, exotic characters and notes of truffle and black and blueberries. This is rich, concentrated Syrah, built for the long haul.

2009 Cornas, Les Vieilles Fontaines, Alain Voge
Alain Voge

Domaine Alain Voge helped to re-establish the appellations of Cornas and Saint Péray on the international wine scene. Alain took over the domaine with his mother in 1965, at age 26, when his father died unexpectedly. He’s risen to the forefront with his wines from less prestigious places, now receiving more of the recognition they deserve. With 7 hectares of 70 individual plots filled with 60 year old vines impressive wines emerge under winemaker Albéric Mazoyer, formerly of Maison Chapoutier.
