Paris’ 2015 Cornas la Geynale comes from the south-facing parcel of the same name and from 100-year-old vines. It’s hugely concentrated and rich yet firm and austere, showing off its granite pedigree. Licorice, plum and crushed stone notes promise much for the future, this wine demands cellaring.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: Youthful purple. Deeply perfumed, mineral-tinged aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and violet, joined by an exotic spicy nuance that builds in the glass. Deep, alluringly sweet dark berry preserve, floral pastille and star anise flavors are lifted by juicy acidity and a cracked pepper quality that emerges with air. Focused and seductively sweet on the tannic finish, which shows superb clarity and outstanding floral-driven persistence. This rich yet vibrant wine is shaping up to be a highlight of this stellar vintage. 94-96/100 !
