Alain Verset Cornas 2019
|France, Rhone, Cornas
Opaque magenta. Expressive, smoke- and mineral-tinged cherry and dark berry aromas pick up suggestions of olive, peony and baking spices with air. Broad and chewy on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis, fruitcake and floral pastille flavors that tighten up and take a sweeter turn as the wine opens up. Finishes sappy, focused and very long, with repeating florality and steadily building tannins.
