1999 Stephane Robert “Cuvee Prestige” Cornas

Robert is a bright young guy with some great vineyards. He doesn’t waste them- this has monstrous levels of Cornas granite and plum character, with a hint of the fleshiness of texture that Juge used to get from the same plots. But this would never make you think of Juge- it’s quite clean. Superb wine.
