Cornas "Cuvée Henri" Vieilles Vignes

2014

Over the years Gilbert's neighbor, Noël Verset, continually asked Gilbert why he didn't make a special bottling of only his oldest vineyards. Now that Nicolas is managing the domaine with him, they decided to give it a try and made just two barrels from "Patou" vineyards that are more than 100 years old. They named the cuvée after Gilbert's father, Henri. 

(90-91) points
"The 2014 Cornas Henri is an inky colored, mineral-laced beauty that gives up lots of savory herbs and dark fruits, medium to full-bodied richness, and surprising richness and depth on the palate. Showing more and more floral characteristics with time in the glass, it should be an outstanding Cornas and have a decade of prime drinking."
