Franck Balthazar Cornas Sans Soufre 2016
Feiring Line Wine Society: May 2019 Selection
From Alice: From young, 9-year-old vines, the wines ages in larger small barrels—600L demi muids—for 18 months and are bottled without fining or filtration or sulfur addition. My only note was “Wow. A stunner.” It was velvet and bramble with a touch of tar. Hugely satisfying with a concrete-like dust of tannin. A beauty and a joy.
