Thierry Allemand Cornas 'Reynard' 2008


We have run out of stock for this item.

Credited with putting Cornas back on the industry’s radar, this unstoppable vigneron farms five hectares of vines organically and focuses on single-vineyard bottlings. ‘Reynard’ is produced from Thierry’s older vines and is whole cluster fermented, aged for 24 months in oak, and bottled unfined/unfiltered. Compared to ‘Chaillots,’ this wine is darker and more concentrated, yet equally sophisticated. Serve with braised beef or hamburgers on the grill. (2008 vintage in the Northern Rhone: challenging, particularly for Cornas, though great producers prevailed. Slightly underripe yet marked by tangy acid.)
