Description

“Dark purple. Fresh dark berry and cherry-cola aromas and flavors are complicated by notes of Asian spices and licorice. Bright and racy on entry, then fleshier and richer in the mid-palate, with a smoky note emerging with aeration. Silky, harmonious tannins frame the long, sweet, incisive finish. Quite elegant, even polished, with plenty of surprisingly immediate appeal.” Josh Raynolds for Stephen Tanzer

“The 2010 Cornas Domaine de St.-Pierre is a more typical savage nearly uncivilized effort exhibiting an inky/purple color as well as lots of pepper beef blood camphor forest floor and blackberry characteristics. It is a wine of extraordinary intensity and superb concentration but it is so tannic and backward that it needs to be forgotten for a decade. Even though it is in bottle it has not evolved much since I tasted it from barrel last year.” Robert Parker

“This captures the slightly taut, sinewy feel of the appellation, with a chalky spine driving the core of currant paste, tapenade and tobacco leaf flavors. The chalky edge takes over on the finish. Solid. Best from 2014 through 2022. 50 cases imported.” Wine Spectator

“The oak influence has been trimmed back at Jaboulet in recent vintages, and this wine shows only traces of menthol and cedar. Cracked peppercorns and red cherries form the core aromas and flavors of this medium-bodied but long and mouthwatering wine. Approachable now, but it should age well for at least 10 years.” Wine Enthusiast
