Tasting Notes

The 2011 Cornas La Geynale (aged 18 months in barrel) offers a wild array of smoked meat, dusty stone, gunflint, pepper and dried herbs to go with loads of black raspberry and blackberry-styled fruit. Full-bodied, rich and with big structure, it has beautiful texture, no hard edges and serious length on the finish. Give it a couple years to round into form and enjoy it through 2031.
