2016 Cornas Chante Perdrix, Delas Frères

This is bright and floral, with ripe dark fruits that have both wildness and elegance. It’s blended from the first and last plots to be harvested in the region, so there’s real complexity here. It’s spicy, pure and mineral with gorgeous depth, impressive length and fine tannins.

With an impressive female winemaker, Claire Darnaud, at the helm since 2010 (though with experience there dating back to 1996), and considerable investment in the cellar to move to the historic town centre, the wines here are some of the more refined in the region. Careful never to use more than 40% new oak, Claire is a master of her craft.
