Still very much a baby, this is brooding, dark and complex, with notes of black cherry, dark chocolate and hedgerow herbs. The structure is huge and tight, but the potential for a world-beating wine is plain to see.
Due to tiny quantities and high demand this wine is limited to 12 bottles per customer.
The utterly profound 2015 Cornas La Sabarotte comes from a terrific lieu-dit located in the heart of the appellation and is brought up all in new French oak. Its deep purple/blue color is followed by incredible notes of black raspberries, blueberries, spring flowers, caramelized meats and licorice. Deep, full-bodied, utterly seamless and profound on the palate, with building, sweet tannin, it's a tour de force that will have two decades or more of longevity!
