Dumien-Serrette Cornas “Patou” 2018
The 2018 is typical new Cornas: deep dark fruit with notes of blackberries, a bit of tar and some oak. There’s plenty of tannin, but very fine-grained, which suggests good evolution and a long life.
The grapes for this wine are destemmed between 50% and 80% depending on the vintage, and the wine spends 12 to 16 months in barrel. This wine generally needs four or more years from the harvest to knit together and to begin showing well, and the 2018 should follow this pattern.
