Like the 2013, the 2012 Cornas Bio has a classic feel in its cracked pepper, wild herbs, tobacco leaf and meaty bouquet. Medium-bodied, juicy and pure, it has impressive focus, bright acidity and clean finish. It will benefit from another year or three in the cellar and have over a decade of overall longevity. These wines are from a partnership between Michel Chapoutier and the Pic family (who run the incredible three-star restaurant, Pic, in Valence). Dec 2014, www.erobertparker.com, Drink: 2015-2024

A taut, focused style, with signed alder and sanguine notes lining the core of lightly dried plum, cherry and blood orange fruit. Tangy herb and olive notes chime in on the pleasantly rustic finish. Sep 2015, James Molesworth, www.winespectator.com, Drink: 2016-2022

(20% new oak): Dark purple. Powerful blackberry, anise and violet pastille scents expand with air, picking up a smoky nuance and a hint of minerality. Juicy dark berry flavors are complemented by zesty acidity and a jolt of spiciness. Quite suave, even elegant for Cornas. Leaves bright floral pastille and blackberry compote notes behind on a long, incisive finish that features silky, fully absorbed tannins. Feb 2015, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2017-2029

Beautifully perfumed nose with rich, ripe, dark fruits; plum, black cherry and delicate oak notes. Perfectly balanced with rounded tannins, ripe acidity and excellent concentration. Classic long Chapoutier finish. May 2016, FINE+RARE
