Cornas "Les Grandes Terrasses" 2013 - Paul Jaboulet Ainé


Cornas is a small village of the Northern Rhône producing powerful and dense Syrah wines. Les Grandes Terrasses got its name from the steep terraces supported by stone walls where the grapes are planted. The wine is full-bodied and rich, with red and black fruits aromas enhanced by a lovely freshness. Typical Syrah,  quite tannic, with spice and liquorice notes on the finish. Wonderful wine for game dishes!

90/100 "As to the Northern Rhône releases, the Cornas les Grandes Terraces sports a deep ruby color as well as classic Cornas notes of black olives, wood smoke, beef blood and meaty dark fruits. Despite the masculine, wild aromas and flavors, it’s surprisingly elegant and polished on the palate, with fine tannin and a great finish. It’s a beautiful wine to drink over the coming 10-15 years."

89/100 "This offers good bright, bitter plum, cherry and red currant fruit flavors, with a lively savory edge and lingering green olive notes. Good energy and freshness here, if just a bit shy on depth in the end. Drink now through 2020." (previous vintage)
