Like the Granite 30, the 2015 Cornas Granite 60 has an incredibly unevolved, barrel sample-like feel. Inky colored, with lots of blueberry and cassis fruit intermixed with searing black pepper, liquid violets and roasted herbs, it has full-bodied richness, a rounded, opulent texture and serious tannic grip. It's gorgeously textured, balanced and pure, and is going to knock your socks off with 2-3 years of bottle age, and keep for two decades. This cuvée comes from the Patou, Les Mazards, and Sauman lieux-dits (this includes some sandy sections as well as plenty of granite terroirs) and was 70% destemmed.
Bright magenta. Spice- and smoke-accented dark berry, floral pastille and olive aromas on the deeply perfumed nose, complicated by a touch of game. Densely packed bitter cherry and cassis flavors reveal an undertone of juicy minerality that adds vibrant lift and cut. Picks up a spicecake quality on the sweet, expansive and strikingly long finish, which is framed by youthful but harmonious tannins.
The 2015 Cornas Granit 60 blends three different parcels. Old vines are fermented whole cluster, accounting for 30% to 40% of the total. This is very much Cornas—dark and bloody with hints of crushed stones and plummy fruit. It’s firm and austere as Cornas can be but ripe at the same time. Give it several years in the cellar, and drink it over the next decade and a half. (JC)
