Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2006

    Our favourite cuvée of Cornas, Voge's Vieilles Vignes is produced from vines that range from 30 - 80 years old. Profound and pure with notes of dark berry fruit and roasted spice, it is well-rounded yet focused - a perfect harmony between power and elegance. Despite its 2005 structure, it is superbly velvety and the antithesis of what many collectors envision of Cornas.

    Robert Parker, February 2008,
    Score: 90

    The full-bodied 2005 Cornas Vieilles Vignes exhibits beautiful black fruit notes intermixed with notions of white flowers, earth, figs, and pepper. Layered, rich, and impressively endowed, it should be at its peak between 2011-2018.

Producer

Alain Voge

Alain Voge is owed a lot of credit for putting Cornas and St Péray on the fine wine map, thanks to his tireless work from the 1980s up to the 2000s. In his later years he has stepped down from the day to day management, entrusting this firstly to the accomplished Albéric Mazoyer and now to Lionel Fraisse who joined the estate in 2012, and who assumes the full post this year following Albéric’s retirement. Together they have driven the estate to ever-greater heights, in 2016 overseeing the final stage of conversion to certified organic farming. The domaine is rightly proud of the work it has done to champion the pithy, phenolic character of Marsanne grown on St Péray’s limestone and granite soils, and their whites have length and savoury bite. The reds are equally well handled, and are benchmark Cornas – bright Syrah with depth, freshness and a hint of wild hedgerow fruit.

Region

Cornas

This most southerly appellation has long been lost in the shadows by the limelight of its more glamorous neighbours. It has suffered from an archaic (and entrenched) reputation of producing tannic, dense wines that need many years to come around. Yet for a long time, this has not been the case. Many of Cornas' wines are produced from slopes of excellent reputation, known for their well drained steep terrains as well as their sheltered exposures from cold northern winds. Due to this micro-climate of sorts, it usually produces riper wine than the more northern appellations in colder vintages. Cornas is one of the most underestimated appellations which can at times challenge Hermitage.
