E&J Durand Cornas ‘Empreintes’ 2005

91 points

Cornas, Northern Rhone. 13.5%

Dark, warm bread-like aromas with a touch of new oak marzipan. Compared to the NZ syrah (Tin Pot 2007) tasted alongside this is meaty and ripe, not so floral and Pinot like.

Good wine. Like Bordeaux this has an appetizing vitality while still being deep and strong.
