96 Points CellarTracker 

This is a stunning Syrah and definitely in the top 3 Syrah wines I have ever tasted. The actual flavours don’t really matter (although, I have to admit the wine is full of blackberries, olive tapenade, black pepper and plums). It is the unbelievable, incredible combination of sheer power and concentration with aristocracy and finesse that really blows your mind. It has to be tasted to be believed and this wine is a true wine lover’s icon, all you need to do is wait another 5-10 years as at the moment it still remains really primary which to be honest as per se a marvel to behold.
A 97 point wine, and I am trying to be really harsh here.

Almost as good, yet in a completely different style, the 2009 Cornas is about as sexy and voluptuous as Cornas gets! Loaded with kirsch, licorice, dried flowers and smoked meat-like aromas and flavors, this awesome 2009 has thrilling concentration, full-bodied richness and knockout length. It has the fruit to impress today, but needs 3-4 years of bottle age and will have over two decades of longevity. (JD) (8/2014)
