2012 Cornas, Les Vieilles Fontaines, Alain Voge

"One of the superstars of the appellation (and vintage), the inky colored 2012 Cornas Les Vieilles Fontaines, which will see 24 months in 15% new French oak, is an extraordinary effort that exhibits blackberry, blueberry, liquid rock, underbrush and charred earth characteristics on the nose. Full-bodied, voluptuous and gorgeously textured, this concentrated, deep and layered effort should become approachable around age 4-5."

2012 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.
