Aged entirely in well-used 600- liter demi-muids, the 2019 “Terre Brulée” is achingly classic—a Cornas of immense concentration, deep, meaty aromatics, an almost shockingly effusive spiciness, and a bristling tension that beckons for a bit of patience but is thrilling in its vibrancy. The bar continues to be set ever higher with each new vintage chez Lionnet.
The 2019 Cornas Terre Brûlée showed brilliantly, with an exotic style in its darker fruits as well as notes of camphor, balsam wood, plums, and ground pepper. It has tons of minerality on the palate and is full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, with enough tannins to warrant a solid 5-7 years of bottle age. It’s a beautiful, classic, impeccably made Cornas that will have two decades of longevity.
