Also not destemmed, the 2017 Cornas Harmonie was brought up in used barrels and is the classic Cornas cuvée of the estate. Its saturated purple color is followed by textbook notes of blackberries, plums, green olives, violets, and chocolate. It's a fleshy, full-bodied, textured barrel sample that has loads to love.
From 30-year-old vines planted on granite, with a hand-picked yield of just 22hl/ha. It's 100% whole-bunch fermented, and matured in 5-year-old 400l oak barrels for 12 months. Detailed and open, it has a herbal register with a touch of menthol freshness. It's only medium-bodied, not overly concentrated or over-ambitious. Extraction and oak are sensitively handled to deliver a delicious, precise Cornas that's ready to drink immediately. (MW)
Like Farge's other top reds, the 2017 Cornas Harmonie was left entirely undestemmed. Notes of crushed stone accent red currants on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is silky and crisp, restrained yet fruity, supple and long on the finish. (JC)
Deep, brilliant violet. A heady bouquet evokes spice-tinged dark berries and pungent flowers, along with hints of incense and licorice. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis, candied violet and spicecake flavors and a touch of palate-numbing cracked pepper. Puts on weight with air and finishes very long and spicy, with resonating dark berry character and steadily building tannins. (JR)
100% whole-bunch fermented. Aged for 12 months in oak (75% new). Lovely herbal overlay on top of pristine cherry and blackberry. Long, profound, open-knit. Understated complexity. Not too stemmy, not too oaky. Very supple structure. Superb winemaking. (RH) 17.5/20 points
