The mouth is lush, with notes of blackberry, violet, lavender, cured meat and blueberry. An accessible wine, but still has obvious cellaring potential. Shines when decanted.

A Glass of Facts

Winemaker at Domaine du Coulet, Matthieu Barret, aims at creating the most natural wines possible in Cornas. The grapes grow on a type of granite soil called “gore” on east facing terrassed slopes. The grapes are gravity fed into the fermenting tanks, one gentle pigeage a day and large old oak barrels are used for fermentation and ageing as to not take away from the purity of fruit.
