2015 Alain Voge Cornas Les Chailles
$ 49.99

Aged 18 months in neutral oak from 30 year old vines. Tight as hell and unable to smell pretty much anything except a twig a stick and some crushed berries. Should open up in 10 years and can age for another 20.  I guess the Wine Spectator has more to say....

95 Points Wine Spectator:  "An understated style, but focus and you’ll see just how lovely the cassis, cherry and raspberry flavors are, carried by riveting acidity and flecked with notes of powdered white pepper and violet. An iron girder drives the finish, pulling everything along. This is defined by pure, sleek cut. Best from 2020 through 2035."
