In the same mold, the 2012 Cornas Les Chailles (aged 18 months in
neutral oak) is a perfumed, beautifully fresh Cornas that oozes class
with its cassis, black raspberry, spring flowers, charcoal and
wild-herb-driven bouquet. While it doesnâ€™t have the weight of the other
two cuvees, it is seamless, medium to full-bodied, and elegant, with no
trace of rusticity or coarseness. Enjoy it over the coming 10-15 years. Wine Advocate 93-96Brilliant ruby.Â Pungent, high-pitched aromas of dried cherry, violet
and spicecake, with a subtle mineral overtone and a hint of black tea.Â
Juicy and precise on the palate, offering lively dark berry flavors and a
deeper note of bitter chocolate.Â A touch of black pepper adds lift and
bite to the long, spicy, youthfully tannic finishÂ Steve Tanzer 91-93
