2018 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Mere Michel - 96 PTS - DECANTER

decanter logo 250"This is a serious wine, it's powerful and full bodied but not excessive, very ripe but not overripe without relying on extraction. It’s fresh, deeply saline and mineral with elaborate, detailed aromatics. The fruit is intense, matching the oak without being swamped by it, underpinned by serrated, edgy tannins and a very long finish. Selection massale planted in 2011 on lieu-dit Les Côtes, south-facing at 230m altitude. No destemming, aged in new demi-muids for 16 months. Drinking Window 2026 - 2036."

2016 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas Mere Michel - 94 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Inky ruby. An explosively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, licorice, exotic spices and incense, along with a strong, smoky mineral overtone. Stains the palate with sweet, sharply delineated black raspberry, boysenberry, violet pastille and spicecake flavors that become more lively with air. Displays a compelling marriage of richness and finesse and finishes extremely long, seamless and precise, with smooth tannins coming in late. - Josh Raynolds"
