"The 2015 Cornas Lieu Dit Les Eygats comes from a terrific vineyard located in the northern portion of the appellation and will see 14 months in 15% new barrels. It has a liqueur of rocks-like minerality as well as layers of blueberries, currants, peppery herbs, graphite and licorice. Full-bodied, incredibly concentrated and stacked on the palate, with a finish that won’t quit, I just hope it shows this well from bottle!

The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest lineup up of wines I’ve tasted from this team." (WA)

"(made with 15 percent whole clusters) Bright purple. Powerful dark berry and licorice aromas, along with floral and smoky mineral flourishes. Broad and seamless on the palate, offering sweet cassis and blueberry flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Smoothly plays richness off energy and finishes very long and sappy, with mounting tannins and a touch of smokiness." (VM)

very pure, very mineral with a huge depth. Aromas of small very ripe berries, spices, and sour cherry. Very long lasting and persisting wine.
