Full-bodied and full-throttle - the texture and volume are just superb. It’s wonderfully intense and precise, with very fine tannins and mineral freshness. Such depth to the flavour, and it just keeps building.
The top Cornas here is the 2016 Cornas la Sabarotte. It’s aging in 80% new oak until being bottled in June 2018. Yes, it’s an unabashedly modern style, full-bodied, creamy in texture and offering pristine purple raspberry fruit, but man is this good. It will be hard to keep from drinking this in its first 5-10 years.
