2012 Cornas, Les Vieilles Vignes, Alain Voge

"Also incredible, and almost as good, the 2012 Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes (20 months in 15% new oak) offers up layers of crème de cassis, blackberry, charred herbs, earth and hints of flowers to go with a lively, pure and incredibly focused profile on the palate. Slightly more fresh and lively than the Les Vieilles Fontaines (which has more richness), this beautiful effort should also be given a handful of years in the cellar."

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.
