Dumien-Serrette Cornas “Henri” 17

$75

Since 2013, the domaine also makes a few hundred bottles of the cuvée Cornas “Henri,” in homage to the winemaker’s grandfather. The grapes for it come from the oldest vines in the Patou vineyard. They are 100% destemmed and the wine spends 20 months in barrel (versus 14 to 16 for the Patou).

It is enormous wine, and from barrel the nose was explosive: intense, long and beautiful. It is a true vin de garde. This was the wine of our tasting in April, so much so that Monsieur Serrette was silent for a moment after we all smelled it — the nose explodes with cassis, licorice, raspberries, black pepper, and plums.
