Jacques Lemenicier’s 2012 vintage is a spectacular expression of one grape- Syrah. This Cornas is peppery and redolent with violets, cassis, blackberries, raspberries, cocoa and licorice now. Will age gracefully easily for 2 decades. As it ages, this wine will take on truffles, dust and leather. Sourced from old vines on steep slopes along the Rhone, Jacques Lemenicier’s production is small and limited.
