Tasting Notes


Opaque purple. Spicy, highly perfumed aromas of cassis, blueberry, candied violet and smoky minerals. Densely packed, fresh and delineated, offering energetic flavors of black and blue fruits and floral pastilles. Shows a restrained sweetness on the finish, which features slow-building tannins and a strong echo of minerality. This wine was scheduled to be bottled about a week after I tasted it from its holding tank.

The Winery

Thierry Allemand

Thierry Allemand’s wines are one of Cornas' most expressive wines. Thierry Allemand did not come from a family of winemakers but rather he created his own domaine after learning winemaking techniques from apprenticing for Cornas legends Robert Michel and Noël Verset. While working alongside these two masters, he acquired his own land on extremely steep slopes on an overgrown vineyard. He patiently rehabilitated the vines to make them produce some of the highest quality grapes in Cornas.

He learned from some of the best, and worked very hard to become so meticulous in his techniques which have paid dividends as his beautifully composed wines are becoming more popular each year.
