Thierry Allemand Cornas 'Les Chaillots' 2019
($349.00 Before Tax)
A lively & concentrated Syrah from Cornas, a pure and very rare expression of the Northern Rhone. Winemaker Thierry Allemand employs a hands-off minimal intervention style to showcase the fruit's unique character originating from the granite sub-soil.

Varietal: 100% Syrah that is sourced from the limestone slopes of Chaillot to the northwest of Cornas and from La Côte, a granite slope just to the west. The vines here are generally less than 30 years of age. The wines are usually full of sweet fruit, ripe and spicy tannins and firm acidity.
Taste: Suave, mineral-driven scents of fresh blackberry, cassis and exotic spices are accompanied by a building floral nuance. Sappy and sharply focused on the palate, displaying powerful lift to the concentrated black/blue fruit, violet pastille, olive paste and spice cake flavors. Finishes extremely long and alluring, with solid mineral thrust, a hint of black pepper and youthfully chewy but non-intrusive tannins.
