Dumien-Serrette is a happily old-fashioned estate in Cornas with 1.5 hectares in the Patou vineyard, which has primarily granitic soils; the remainder, .3 hectares, is located in Les Savaux. The vines in Patou date back to the 1920’s, with some even exceeding 100 years old. In 2021 50% of the grapes were de-stemmed; pressed with an old-fashioned basket press and aged 2 years in 2 to 7-year-old barrels. The 2021 "Patou" is a beautiful Cornas to drink now, showing great elegance and purity of fruit, but also has the necessary acidity and structure for long-term aging. Here is the review in drinkrhone "quite dark red; pretty red fruit shows on the early nose, raspberry notably, with herbal tones, a coulis style that is inviting. The palate offers sympa engagement on the attack, carries appealing red berry fruit with mild tannins tucked in on the mid-palate. A cooler tone develops late on. It’s a good example of Cornas comme il faut, not too weather-led, the fruit tasty, really welcoming. It’s very bonny, a spherical wine in the making, with Pinote touches, so elegance. Its late iron, tea leaves notes are very authentic. It’s Burgundian, high appeal Cornas. Drink until 2045-47."
