Joe Czerwinski, December 2018

I'm not sure the 2016 Cornas Vieilles Fontaines has the fruit to handle the 24 months I was told it would spend in oak—time will tell. When tasted in September, it was looking toasty and cedary, with menthol notes over red plum and strawberry flavors. Full-bodied, yet simultaneously tart, herbal and oaky, it was looking rather disjointed and more interesting than truly pleasurable.
