A step up from previous vintages, the 2017 Cornas les Murettes boasts complex floral, herbal and licorice notes on the nose. Combined with a whirl of blueberry and raspberry fruit, plus a dash of crushed stone, it makes compelling drinking. This full-bodied wine does have a firm, drying finish to complement the mouthwatering fruit, so don’t be in too much of a hurry to crack a bottle.
It’s always a pleasure to visit the sisters in charge of this family domaine just outside Tain l’Hermitage. This year, things were a bit hectic, as grapes were being delivered and processed, vinifications were underway and the organized chaos that characterizes vintage reigned. “2018 will be a very, very good year,” said Corinne Michelas, as we tasted a few grapes. “2017 has less wine, but lots of pretty perfumes; 2016 is a balanced year, with nice quantities.” Quality here has never been better, with barrel samples of the 2017s looking particularly impressive.
