Cornas, Guillaume Gilles 2007

Brilliant, emerging star of Cornas! Worked with Robert Michel and Jean-Louis Chave. His plots total a mere 2 hectares, consisting of vines planted in the 1970s and 1950s. The wines are aged for up to 22 months in large oak casks. Production is just 600 cases. Earthy, mineral violet scents. Beautiful concentration, structure, and persistence. A really spectacular Cornas!

"Ruby-red. Highly expressive aromas of raspberry, cherry, violet and cracked pepper, plus a subtle smoky undertone. Lively, sharply delineated red and dark fruit flavors are complemented by notes of candied violet and given spine by juicy acidity. Very fresh Cornas with strong mineral snap to its long, juicy, fruit-driven finish." 91/100 Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"bright, full dark robe, legs down the glass. Has a blackberry coulis style aroma that lingers nicely - it is not complicated , but has a floral and mineral snap in it as well. There is full black fruit on the start of the palate - the fruit is sunny and has enough juice to be pretty now; it is followed by oak in a minor register. This is nicely made Cornas that comes across well, with elegance and attractive fruit. The heart of the Syrah grape is here. The length is sound. From late 2009. 2016-18 Dec 2008 Previously Dec 2007 (Chaillot, cask) good life in a purple, mauve robe; the nose bounds along, with clear fruit and substance of content around it. The palate holds good, savoury fruit - has a lot of charm and plump, sustained appeal - delightful fruit. From 2010 for early appeal, can live 16-18 years. Dec 2007" 4 Stars John Livingstone-Learmonth, DrinkRhone
