Wine SpectatorPacked with dark plum, blackberry and anise notes at the core, laced with bay, sweet tapenade and iron on the finish. This has heft and cut, energy and length. Should cellar well. Best from 2016 through 2022. 1,700 cases made.

Wine Advocatethe 2012 Cornas les Terres Brulees is a soft, sexy and forward effort that gives up lots of truffle, wild herb, peppered meat and sweet darker styled fruit. It's a hedonistic, well-made Cornas to drink over the coming decade.
