Lionnet Cornas - limited release

After reading an interesting article by Jon Bonne on Cote Rotie Cornas, I was struck by how few top notch Cornas are available in our market. We happily take our 3-6 bottle allocation of Thierry Alemand and August Clape when offered (let me know if you are interested in these) but rarely do we get the chance to stock a great Cornas on the shelf. We are very excited to offer the 2011 Domaine Lionnet Cornas “Terre Brulee” in both 750ml and Magnum

2011 Domaine Lionnet Cornas “Terre Brulee”...$55.99
Rich and dense, featuring lots of plum, blackberry and black currant fruit allied to polished tannins. Reveals ample texture and character, with a chalky underlay and smoldering tobacco and charcoal notes creeping in on the finish. Powerfully rendered, pulling equally from the modern and old-school sides of the spectrum. Best from 2016 through 2028. 200 cases imported.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Spectator
