CORNAS “LES RUCHETS”

2016 France Rhone Valley
95 Points

Intense dark fruit preserve and floral scents, along with hints of olive paste, vanilla and exotic spices. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering powerful boysenberry and cassis flavors underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Rich and broad but lively as well, showing excellent clarity and a suave floral nuance on the strikingly long, youthfully tannic finish. – J.R.

CORNAS “TERRES BRÛLÉES”

2016 France Rhone Valley
93 Points

(91–93 Pts) Inky ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and black currant, complicated by suggestions of smoky oak, tobacco and incense. Seamless and juicy on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors that are given spine and cut by a core of gentle acidity. Rich yet energetic in style, displaying smooth tannins and very good finishing clarity and length. – J.R.

LE DIX DE LOS VASCOS

2015 Chile Colchagua Valley
92 Points

The classical Cabernet blend of the 2015 Le Dix de Los Vascos includes 10% Carmenere and 5% Syrah. It has the Bordeaux elegance with Chilean exuberance, everything in a subtle and harmonious way. It has all the blackberries, cedar wood and pencil lead with some floral touches and a special brightness. The palate is medium-bodied and reveals fine-grained tannins and integrated, focused flavors. – L.G.
