75cl * 14% * Northern Rhone, France
Cornas was once regarded as the most stubborn wine in the cellar: traditionally, it could take a decade or more for the tannins to soften and for the wine to show its true character. But modern styles are made with such an inherent ability to please that they can be enjoyed after only a few years in bottle. With its figgy fruit and broad, peppery undertones Chapoutier’s Cornas is ideally suited to warming stews. Drink to 2025+.
