2017 Thierry Allemand Cornas ‘Reynard’ Northern Rhone
Winemaker Notes: ‘Reynard’ is produced from Thierry’s older vines and is whole cluster fermented, aged for 24 months in oak, and bottled unfined/unfiltered. Compared to ‘Chaillots,’ this wine is darker and more concentrated, yet equally sophisticated.
Vinous - "Glass-staining ruby. Powerful, deeply perfumed aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice, smoked meat and olive, along with a sexy floral overtone that gains strength as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with deeply concentrated, spice-laced blackberry, boysenberry, violet pastille and fruitcake flavors, while a smoky mineral flourish adds vibrant lift. Chewy tannins shape an extremely long, mineral-driven finish that shows superb power and insistent florally."
