Young readers, or those with good longevity genes, should check out the enormous...black/purple-colored 2009 Cornas Domaine de St.-Pierre. A classic Cornas, it offers up scents of beef blood, charcuterie, blackberries, new saddle leather, pepper and smoked game, mouthsearing levels of tannin and huge extract. It reminds me of some of the old Noel Verset Cornas made in the 1970s and early 1980s...It should age effortlessly for 25-30 years or more. Robert Parker

Tart Dark Fruit, Smokey, Salty, Damp Earth, just the right touch of Barnyard, Herbal-Sage, Thyme, Tomato Leaf... Very well balanced. Masculine, but with a touch of femininity... (Like a well-groomed Man!) Held up beautifully the 2nd day too

Loaded with blue fruit. Heavy on the oak but should subside with some time. Nice balance here otherwise, fruit & acid. Modernly styled, not what I want in a Cornas but certainly a well made wine. Parker's tasting note said it reminded him of Noel Verset from the 70's and early 80's. While I haven't experienced a Verset that old it seems like a bit of a stretch.
