Product Description

Johann Michel Cornas (magnum) is 100% Syrah

Well structured and round, it displays red fruit, leather, black cherry, liquorice and black berry aromas.

Manual harvest, selection of the grapes from the "Chaillot" parcel, full clusters, fermentation in tanks for 3 weeks, daily remontage and pigeage. Malolactic fermentation in oak barrels and aging on the lees for 12-18 months in barrels (new old barrels) The average age of the vines is 12 years. Yield: 25 hl/ha

 


Review:

I had no such problems with the reds, however, and the 2015 Cornas looks to be a brilliant wine. Blackberries, wild herbs, pepper and black olives all emerge from this full-bodied, rich, unctuous and tannic 2015 that's going to require 2-4 years of cellaring and keep for 15-20 years.-Wine Advocate 92-94 Points
