2011 Cornas, Les Vieilles Vignes, Alain Voge

Lavender, thyme and rosemary provide an enticing aroma. This is a very attractive and perfumed Cornas. There is excellent balance on the palate, with soft and rounded tannins and a mouthwatering acidity. The fruit flavours are dark and there is a slight gamey note too. Albéric compared this wine to the 2007 vintage, but with 2011 having greater freshness and concentration.
(Given 94-96 points in the Wine Advocate, Robert Parker)

2011 Cornas, Les Vieilles Vignes, 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.
