(Pre-Arrival, expected 6/14) ("from very old vines, between 40 to 100 years of age, in several notable Cornas vineyards, which are all blended into their flagship cuvée “Terre Brûlée”: Mazards, with granite-inflected soils of clay-limestone, is dark and powerful; Chaillot contributes classic granitic heft and dusty spice; clay-limestone Pied de la Vigne, which flanks Chaillot’s eastern edge, provides structural rigor; and Combe, the southernmost lieu-dit in the appellation, comprises sandy granite soils which give rounder fruit and more overtly floral aromas. Aged entirely in used 600-liter demi-muids, “Terre Brulée” is elemental and stern in its youth (in keeping with the house style), yet it will unfurl over the years to reveal a wine of great lift and energy." From drinkrhone: "dark red; the bouquet is inky, with well lined up cassis, raspberry, a marked note of iodine with herbs such as thyme. The palate deals a good stream of blue fruit, a floral murmur, the tannins having dig; it generates gras depth, finishes firmly, is proper engine room wine for the blend. It’s straight along late on, with a blood assertion, a rocky finale, has character. The tannins will enter gradually here."
