94 points Vinous
"Shimmering ruby. Mineral-accented dark berries, smoked meat and licorice on the incisive nose. Appealingly sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors show fine delineation and pick up a sexy floral nuance with air. Displays strong, energetic lift and mineral cut on the gently tannic, persistent finish, which features resonating floral and exotic spice notes."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Emmanuelle Verset has fully taken charge of this micro-estate from her father, Alain, and is producing a single, traditionally styled, unadorned and graceful Cornas that shows little in the way of rusticity, with polished tannins and plenty of floral, mineral and succulent herb character. The Versets’ Cornas holdings amount to a mere 1.3 hectares, but they sit in some of the appellation’s most prized sites – Reynard, La Côte, Mazards, Les Côtes and Champelrose. The Cornas is done with 100% whole clusters and sees only neutral oak.
