Tasting Notes

One of the wines of the vintage is Voge’s 2005 Cornas Les Vieilles Fontaines. Coming from a single plot of granite soils, this inky colored beauty offers incredible purity in its plum, blackberry, licorice and violet-laced aromas and flavors. Showing more and more minerality with time in the glass, this full-bodied, rich, thrillingly concentrated Cornas is reminiscent of the 2010 with its notable freshness, building tannin and blockbuster length. It will have 20-25 years of longevity.

80-year-old vines. 24 months in oak so won’t be bottled until next Nov. Lovely complex nose already, combining purity of black fruit, with spice, violets and an edge of leather – remarkably fragrant at this point in its life. Wonderful fruit concentration, great acidity and very fine supple tannis give cool freshness, though plenty of them. A terrific wine that is already very appealing.
