Tasting Notes

The 2015 reds from the Northern Rhône are truly spectacular and this vintage rivals or surpasses the 2010s and 2009s. The 2015 Cornas Domaine de Saint-Pierre is an absolute blockbuster that blew me away. Readers looking for a wine that tastes like the essence of these steep, wild, granite hillsides need to latch on to this. Black olives, beef blood, cassis, smoked meat and pepper all emerge from this big, backwards, full-bodied and concentrated beauty. It’s going to need 4-5 years of bottle age to be drinkable.

Score: 93/95Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate (228), December 2016

The 2015 Cornas Domaine de Saint Pierre is a full-bodied, concentrated wine that brings the essence of Cornas to the bottle in its scents of crushed stones and firm, tannic finish. Hints of toasted almond and mocha give it a gloss of modernity, but its red plum fruit, hints of iron or blood, and sturdy feel bring it right back to the appellation's granite slopes. Drink Date 2023 - 2035
