Cornas Reynard Thierry Allemand 2018

The wine

The Syrah grapes that make up this cuvée are grown in clay soils and shelter as best as they can from the icy winds that blow across the appellation. Even so, these organically-grown (but not certified) grapes produce an exceptional Cornas. This cuvée, with its extremely natural vinification process, has a high density and, above all, extraordinary refinement. And it is a refinement that results in a silky texture, vibrant aromas oscillating between fruit, smoke, roasted notes and great freshness. A wine about which all the professional critics are in agreement.

About the Producer Thierry Allemand

Thierry Allemand, a former electromechanical engineer, has become a flagship name among the steep hillside vineyards of Cornas. These days his wines fly off the shelves at very high prices, making up for 20 years of hard work without recognition. 22 workers are employed on his 5-hectare vineyard. The vines are treated with copper and sulphur and the soil is turned with a hand-guided plough and winch or with a mattock. But although he has stopped using herbicides, Thierry Allemand has not sought organic certification, seeing himself as an Artisan rather than a commercial producer. In the winery, no sulphur or additives are used during vinification and the maceration process is slow and gentle, as is the punch-down. The wines are matured for 24 months in used oak barrels followed by a further three months in foudres. This is a top-quality domain managed by a low-key and very talented wine grower.
