Cornas wines are a gem that I need to seek out more. They are bold, unsubtle expressions of what could be the world’s greatest red grape - Syrah. The best examples are extraordinary. As a friend recently observed, my generation could embrace Cornas the way my parent’s generation has embraced Bordeaux. Domaine Lionnet is a tiny two person operation with just 2.2 tiny hectares. Terre Brûlée is something dense and rich, spectacular, and completely unostentatious and pure. The nose has generous blackberry and violet. The palette is supported with strong tannin and upfront flavors of blackberry and raspberry and with an underlay of meat, olive, and iodine. The balance is what makes the beauty.

Pleasant nose; however entry is harsh and tannic. Fruit is light but typical of Syrah.

First organic vintage almost BD. Even stinkier and earthy nose. Palate is a bit more towards stones than Gilles. Long finish but towards earth relative to fruit. Gordon's northern Rhone tasting 9/20/16.

This was good drinking now good fruit and acidity though I wouldn't think a long wait would improve things

"there is something about a brand-new Cornas that should not be missed. Muhammad Ali may have grown more savvy as he matured, but who can forget the young Ali, that dazzle and explosiveness?" — Kermit Lynch
