Domaine Johann Michel Syrah Cornas 2016

Add to wishlist

"The 2016 Cornas from Michel is brilliant and a match for just about anything out there.  Its deep purple color is followed by a nose of black fruits, olives, cured meats, and wild herbs. Deep, full-bodied, and incredibly pure on the palate, it shows the classic style of the vintage yet also packs plenty of depth and richness. It’s a thrilling Cornas to drink over the coming 15-20 years." 95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck

''Whiffs of smoke, anise, black plum and cherry are introduced in this deft, nuanced Syrah. Freshly balanced and supple on the palate, it finishes with a firm, penetrating grip of tannins. Lovely already it should soften and meld from 2021 and continue to improve through 2030.'' 92 Points, Anna Lee C. IIJIMA, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''Mulberry and cooked plum, has a raspberry top note. The palate drinks with plump appeal, is already en route, and flows consecutively, no halts along its way. This is charming. It’s well balanced. '' John Livingstone-Learmonth,

“This truly rare vintage is a new benchmark. The growing season was warm during the day but cool at night, with an unusually large diurnal swing that led to slow, even ripening across all varieties, while maintaining acidity. Reds are laden with fruit, yet extremely racy and fresh in feel.” 99/100, Wine Spectator Magazine

“Unmissable. This is one of the best vintages of the past few decades. Do not miss it,” Decanter Magazine
