K&L Notes

Guy Farge took over the management of his family estate in 1980. Originally he sold his fruit to the Cave de Tain (where he worked) and then to Delas. In 2007, he began producing wines under his own label. Each year, the wines have grown and evolved as has Guy's winemaking prowess. Now working with his son Thomas, each bottling represents some of the best we have seen from his primarily granitic terroirs. The Cornas is a particularly special site composed primarily of the Reynard lieu-dit and a small portion of Sauman. It is aged in 400L primarily used barrels for about 12 months. The results, as with all of Guy's wines, are pure balanced expressions of their terroir.

    Someone once called a Cornas wine 'a lorry driver, not a ballerina'. Well, my answer would be 'why can't a ballerina drive a lorry?' This superlative wine demonstrates the sinuous grace of a dancer with the supple ability to shift into high gear as the rich, savory fruit unveils its telltale charms in the glass. A Cornas of poise and character, showcasing the excellent marriage of fruit and oak, and the deft touch of a true winemaker who works, lives and breathes the air in the vineyards. Nothing exaggerated, just pure and refined and in a word, delicious.

    Every time a new vintage of this arrives in our stores is like a second Christmas. I am admittedly a huge fan of French Syrah, but this wine will appeal to most any palate. An enchanting nose of jasmine, lilac and freshly tilled earth leads to an equally pretty palate boasting ripe boysenberry, stewed meat, dried herbs and pristine acid. It's such a joy to taste that I could not resist the impulse to revisit this bottle several times over the course of the day. I highly recommend stocking multiple bottles to avoid the disappointment of running out.

    This is now the third vintage of this wine we have imported and each subsequent vintage has in some way topped the previous. The 2015 was a powerhouse. Structured and powerful, it will benefit with years in the cellar to show it best self. The 2016 was perfumed and open. One of the best drinking Cornas' we had from that vintage and will continue to delight for years to come. The 2017 is the "most" Cornas though. This just feels so much like the region, the smell of the fruit, the smoky bacon, the crushed herbs. In your glass it transports. That is my favorite expression in any wine. I've been fortunate enough to visit Guy Farge and this region and every swirl, sniff and sip brings me back to Cornas. For a relatively humble price at this quality level, you don't need to get on a plane to be transported. Just open a bottle of this amazing wine.
