Buy Alain Voge Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes
Wine Spectator 92 points - Inky ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of cherry compote, dark chocolate, licorice pastille and black pepper. Broad, sweet and fleshy on the palate, with strong intensity to its singed plum, blackberry liqueur and bitter chocolate flavors. This powerful, concentrated, youthfully tannic wine finishes spicy and long, with excellent thrust and mineral-driven persistence.
Similar in style, yet deeper and richer, the 2012 Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes comes from 8-9 different parcels and sees roughly 20 months in 15% new French oak barrels. It’s a blockbuster-styled Cornas that doesn’t pull any punches in its sexy, ripe and textured personality. Black raspberry, cassis, licorice, ground herbs and sweet oak all emerge from this polished 2012, and while it dishes out plenty of pleasure now due to its wealth of fruit, it will have 10-15 years of longevity.
Ripe, intense and very pure, with a gorgeously polished, sleek beam of cassis, plum sauce and raspberry fruit lined with mouthwatering iron, lavender and rosemary notes. The long finish has serious cut. Best from 2015 through 2030.J.M.

Wine maker notes
Our Cornas "Les Vieilles Vignes” comes from syrah vineyards, more than 30 years old, on decomposed granite slopes, also called "gore”.

Food pairing
The perfect companion for beef, a shoulder of young lamb in its early years, and of game or strongest meat, after several years in a good cellar.

Producer
With over 70 parcels of vines totaling seven hectares, it is no wonder that Alain Voge sometimes seems distracted. Half in jest, he says that the reason he harvests so late is to figure out which vines are his. Lovably comic yet humble, honest, dedicated to his domaine, and incredibly hardworking, Alain Voge and his wife Elaine have been estate-bottling Cornas since the mid-1950s. In spite of producing what most critics, Parker and the Wine Spectator included, call some of the finest wines in the world, the Voges remain the kind of people one wishes one had for grandparents.
