90(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2002

($60; the later bottling, done in September with somewhat less fining) Good medium ruby. Liqueur-like, superripe aroma shows a hint of damp earth and seems a bit more evolved than that of the earlier bottling. Fat, sweet and very rich, with a flavor of kirsch Seems a bit less fresh-fruity in style than the earlier bottling and more spicy. Finishes very long, with substantial, slightly tough tannins. The early bottling is sweeter and easier to approach today, while this strikes me as more typical and perhaps more serious older-style Cornas.

Here, steep, terraced vineyards help produce full-bodied, intense, tannic wines loaded with white pepper and red fruit. In the vineyard, Syrah is largely cooperative- vines are productive, but not overly vigorous. Skins are thick, helping the grape...
