2019 Cornas, Les Vieilles Vignes, Alain Voge

This is the second of the domaine’s signature cuvées (the other is Cornas Les Chailles). It comes from, unsurprisingly, the old vines which are planted further up the slopes at altitudes ranging from 250-400m. Small amounts of whole bunch fruit add freshness and silkiness. Superb old vine intensity, this is concentrated but still so accessible.

2019 Cornas, Les Vieilles Vignes, 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.
