Ruby-red. Vivid ruby. Rich red and dark berry preserves on the nose, with smoked meat, licorice and mineral nuances. Weighty blackberry and cassis flavors coat the palate, with bright minerality providing lift and a note of cherry pit giving the wine a slightly bitter edge. Decidedly more classic Cornas than the Les Chailles, with strong finishing minerality and smokiness. I was looking for serious tannins but didn't detect them; this is pretty graceful for a rich wine.
