There’s wild perfume here, and a plush texture over the juicy dark fruits, with liquorice and meaty savouriness developing. With impressive length and a gorgeously clean finish: this is a wine that will last and last.
The 2016 Cornas les Eygats is aging in 50% new oak and will likely be bottled in March 2018. It’s inky in hue, with enthralling notes of crushed stone and ripe plums on the nose. It’s full-bodied, rich and velvety on the palate yet also fresh, bright and lively.
