l’Earl Domaine Alain Verset - A&E Cornas 2017
Cult stuff here. For generations, the Verset family has defined the famous style of Cornas Syrah with their small-batch releases from family-famed plots in this coveted sub-region of the Rhone. Today, Alain Verset's daughter Emmanuelle continues the family’s rich and renowned legacy. This Syrah saw some whole-bunch ferments, aging in older barrels and no fining, filtration or and additions. Brimming with wild black and blue fruits, it’s savoury yet fruity, peppery yet plush, textural yet silky, noble yet friendly. More layers than a Photoshop file. This is a exceptional addition to any cellar … if you can wait.
