Alain Verset has a tiny vineyard holding in Cornas, his home village. He makes classic, traditional-style Cornas, using whole bunch fermentations, without a hint of heaviness or hard-edges. The colour of this 2011 is a bright, mid ruby-garnet, the aromas being complex and meaty, combining dried herbs, rose-petals and spices. It has sweet fruit in the mouth, showing purity, elegance and super depth. The tannins are fully softened and this is a wonderful bottle that will give huge pleasure.
