"A brilliant effort from Graillot's one hectare holding on the Cornas hillsides (i.e., Chaillots and Sabarote) is the 2010 Cornas Equis. This dense purple-colored 2010 exhibits beautiful aromas of blackberries, charcoal and forest floor along with a full-bodied, powerful, silky style with ripe tannins. Layered, rich, textured and long, this beauty can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. " 92+, drink 2012-2027.

A dense, dark, brooding wine which sets the benchmark for the appellation. Typically a bouquet of red fruit with underlying hints of leather, spice and wood-smoke precedes a palate of profound concentration and structure with a wealth of dark, black fruit and peppery flavours over rugged tannins, which soften and sweeten with age.

Cornas Wine - Buy Wine from the Cornas Region of France
Cornas, lying on the west bank of the river Rhône, just north of Valence is home to a handful of dedicated vignerons and just one grape – Syrah. Blessed with a microclimate, terroir and grape variety that induce hefty tannins, Cornas is a dense, uncompromising wine that appreciates bottle-age – especially in superior vintages. Auguste Clape, ably assisted by his son, Pierre, is the undisputed master of the appellation, making wine of world renown, and those looking for a welcoming introduction into this rewarding but often misunderstood appellation might do well to start with Jean-Louis Thiers’, attractive, mid-weight Cornas.
