Maison Les Alexandrins Cornas - 2015

AOC Cornas


     

Avis

Lurid ruby. Spice-accented black and blue fruits, succulent flowers and smoky minerals on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and focused in the mouth, offering energetic boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that become spicier on the back half. The floral note returns on a spicy, clinging finish framed by smooth tannins.

This has a racy, chalky underpinning that is well-integrated and provides nice contrast to the rich core of crushed plum and boysenberry fruit. Light anise, violet and rosemary notes thread the lengthy finish. Rock-solid. Best from 2020 through 2030.

Smells extremely ripe. Dark plum fruits in a brooding and dense Cornas. A rich palate that is at the limit of ripeness. Drink now.
