Lionnet Cornas 2012

Posted on Posted in Domaine Lionnet, Occasional Thoughts

Drinking this wine tonight (see photos). Classic Cornas. May be the best Cornas in stock right now. Powerful, dramatic, severe, every element of the appellation is on display … The granite soils, the non-destemmed grapes, the raw ferocity of Syrah in the northern Rhone.  So good right now but with a brilliant future of 10 plus years at a minimum. Our public will catch on eventually just like it did with Levet.IMG_0278

I like our lineup in the northern Rhone: Levet, Becheras, Gerard, Gilles, Lionnet. Unbeatable. NIR
