2018 domaine du tunnel, cornas, pur noir
Why We're Buying
Domaine du Tunnel Pur Noir Cornas is one of the most intense wines offered at Vinovest. The secret? The estate uses small, concentrated berries from vines that are more than 100 years old. The result is a rich and energizing blend that wine critic Jeb Dunnuck called "(a) world-class wine that readers should beg, borrow, or steal to get ahold of!"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Production of Robert's 2018 Cornas Pur Noir will be either one or two barrels, sourced from a tiny parcel next to Champelrose and La Fontaine. Full-bodied and dense yet not over-extracted or overripe, both barrels I tasted from showed an impressive degree of elegance, potent plum and cassis flavors and tremendous finishes. One barrel had more licorice, the other was more floral and minty.
