Allemand Cornas

1 bottle of each available.

2017 Allemand Cornas Chaillot....$249.99
Inky ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented black and blue fruits, licorice, smoked meat and olive paste on the intensely perfumed nose. Concentrated blackberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors take on a suave floral nuance with aeration. Densely packed but lively as well, finishing with outstanding clarity, harmonious tannins and superb, blue-fruit-driven persistence.
Rated 95/100 Vinous Media

2017 Allemand Cornas Reynard....$319.99
Glass-staining ruby. Powerful, deeply perfumed aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice, smoked meat and olive, along with a sexy floral overtone that gains strength as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with deeply concentrated, spice-laced blackberry, boysenberry, violet pastille and fruitcake flavors, while a smoky mineral flourish adds vibrant lift. Chewy tannins shape an extremely long, mineral-driven finish that shows superb power and insistent florality.
Rated 96/100 Vinous Media
