Dumien-Serrette Cornas Patou 2019
From avg 70+ year old vines. The nose shows the beautiful blend of inky dark fruit and smoky animale quality for which Cornas is known. But the mouth is where the 2019 shines unusually bright — focused, silky fruit rests on a foundation of fine-grained tannins across a mouthfeel rippling with tension and cut. The darkness — violets, licorice, black cherries — and lightness — crisp, refreshing, vibrant — exist somehow in perfect balance. Robert Parker’s reviewer awarded 93-95 points, calling it “certainly impressive.”
