Heiner Lobenberg über:
Cornas 2020


Lobenberg: Schwarz. Immens würzige und zugleich blumige Nase, zerdrückte schwarze Waldbeeren, Erde. Sattes rundes Tannin im Mund, Brombeere, Maulbeere, erdige Würze, mineralisch salzig und zugleich auch irgendwie fein, dabei herb-mineralisch und auch extraktsüß, unglaublich nachhaltig. Man mag es kaum glauben, das wird mal trotz seiner Kraft ein großer Finessewein. 100/100


Galloni über: Cornas

-- Galloni: Glass-staining ruby. Intensely perfumed dark berry preserve, violet oil, olive, cured meat and woodsmoke scents show fine definition and vibrant spice- and mineral-driven lift. Offers palate-staining, spice-laced blackberry, bitter cherry, fruitcake and violet pastille flavors that deepen and open up steadily through the midpalate, while maintaining energy. The strikingly long, penetrating finish features youthfully chewy tannins, a sweet touch of cola and lingering floral and exotic spice qualities. All whole clusters and no new oak, as usual. 97-99/100


Decanter über: Cornas

-- Decanter: A vibrant, focused and intense style of Cornas, a return to a classic style after the richness of 2018 and the power of 2019. Their Renaissance will be made this year, so both wines will need to be bottled before a more precise evaluation of each blend can be made, but the outlook is good. Whole-bunch fermented in unlined concrete tanks, matured in small old foudres. 97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Cornas

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The flagship 2020 Cornas is a beauty! Clearly in the same league as recent top vintages, it has a wild bouquet of black and blue fruits, liquid violets, game, and iron, with some incense and spice thrown in for good measure. It's slightly more round and sexy compared to the more powerful 2019, but it’s perfectly balanced, with ripe tannins and a great finish. This heavenly Cornas will be drinkable in just 3-4 years and evolve for two decades. 97/100


Suckling über: Cornas

-- Suckling: A fragrant nose of blackberries, dark cherries, wild herbs, baking spices, stones and black pepper. Medium body with fine, firm tannins. It has volume and structure, but remains extremely agile. It has bright acidity and a vibrant peppery character, giving vitality and tension on the palate. Well-rounded and vivid with a succulent and textured, long developing finish. Best after 2026. 97/100
