Tremendously dense and powerful, the 2019 Cornas is a dazzling, dark-fruited beast that’s loaded with mint, cassis and licorice notes. Full-bodied and almost overflowing with intensity, it somehow manages to pull all that impressive richness and extract into a silky, fine-grained finish of amazing length and elegance. Unless you are hell-bent on trying it on release, give it some time in the cellar—it should be peaking around 2035 or so. 95-97 points. The Wine Advocate.
