1991 Juge “Cuvee C” Cornas

Juge’s Cornas always stands apart. The ’91 C has lost its primary sulfur and raspberry, and now shows more of the Juge poopy-lilac perfume. Supple and fleshy, the ’91 has an impressive fan of flavor, medium body, and outstanding length. There’s an attractive herbal nuance to complete the picture. Drinking well now, it is in no danger of senility in the next ten years.

SY (8/99)

Update: I underestimated how good this was going to get. It’s even richer and spicier now, stunning Cornas. Ready to drink, still with no danger of early death.
