"Supertight, this bright, racy, fresh style red offers a dense core of black currant, damson plum, tobacco and tapenade notes that stay racy on the mouthwatering, chalk-framed finish. Needs cellaring to fill out fully. Best from 2011 through 2021. -JM
Wine Advocate -- 91-93pts The superb, dense purple-colored 2007 Cornas Vieilles Vignes exhibits aromas of incense, blackberries, scorched earth, and roasted meats. This long, full-bodied, savage, but civilized offering possesses layers of concentration, superb purity, and a long, tannic finish. It should turn out to be one of the top wines of the vintage in this appellation. Moreover, it will last 15-20 years where well stored. (Not yet released)"
