2010 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Cuvée Jana - 96 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 94 Pts"The 2010 Cornas Cuvee Jana (which comes primarily from the Chaillots vineyard) is outrageously delicious. Explosive notes of blackberries, gun flint and acacia flowers are followed by a heady, full-throttle, dense, skyscraper-like Cornas. Massive concentration, considerable tannins, abundant extract, but no hard edges result in a wine with exceptional potential. Forget it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 25+ years. - Robert Parker"

2011 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Cuvée Jana - 92 - IWC

Tanzer Internaional Wine Cellar 92 Pts"Inky ruby. A wild, highly perfumed bouquet presents dark berry compote, cherry pit, black tea and candied violet. Smoky, spicy and penetrating, with strong lift and punch to its blueberry and cherry-cola flavors. The smoky note carries through an impressively long, sweet and gently tannic finish. If 2011 is supposed to have made weak-kneed wines then this one didn't get the memo. - JR"

2011 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Cuvée Jana - 92-94 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 94 Pts"The 2011 Cornas Cuvee Jana is one of the top wines of the vintage. It offers notes of lead pencil shavings, pen ink and creme de cassis in its full-bodied, lusty, opulent personality. In contrast, the fabulous 2010 possesses even more tannin, power and concentration – as hard as that is to believe. These are both impressive vintages from this up-and-coming young Cornas producer."

2012 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Cuvée Jana - 93-95 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 95 Pts"Bigger and richer (than the cuvée Tradition), with notions of barbecue, smoke, bloody meat, plum and licorice, the 2012 Cornas Jana packs a serious amount of fruit into its full-bodied, voluptuously textured profile, yet never seems cumbersome or over the top. Count me a fan and this knockout Cornas excels on all accounts. Unfortunately, there’s not much of it to go around. Grab a couple bottles if you can, and enjoy it over the coming 15-20 years. - JD"

2013 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Cuvée Jana - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Glass-staining ruby. A complex bouquet evokes ripe dark berries and floral pastilles, along with suggestions of licorice, woodsmoke and olive paste. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering juicy black and blue fruit and spicecake flavors supported by zesty acidity. Rich yet vibrant and precise, finishing gently sweet and long, with slow-building tannins. - Josh Raynolds"

2013 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Cuvée Jana - 93 PTS - WA

wa93"A sensational effort from the young Johann Michel, the 2013 Cornas Cuvée Jana sports an inky purple/blue color to go with notes of crushed rocks, liquid violets, crème de cassis and dry, aged beef. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, it still packs a serious amount of fruit and depth. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming 10-12 years."
