Eric et Joel Durand Cornas Empreintes 2016 - 1.5L
100% Syrah. One of the most underrated producers in the Rhone, the Durand brothers craft singular wines from Cornas. 2016 is one of the best years for the Northern Rhone and this wine hits every note you would want in old world Syrah.
"The 2016 Cornas Empreintes features hints of cedar, brown sugar and dried spices layered over its plummy fruit (it was aged in 20% new oak, with the bulk in older wood). Full-bodied, supple and ripe, it's charming but with more stuffing than that word suggests, showing ample concentration and soft, dusty tannins on the long finish. It's a terrific Cornas to drink over the next 10-12 years." - Joe Czerwinski
