Cornas 2009 Domaine de St. Pierre, Paul Jaboulet Aine
One of Jaboulet's rarest wines. Most of the 11 acres of Jaboulet's Domaine de St. Pierre were purchased in 1993. Located at the top of the hill, the appellation's highest point, the vineyard is situated near the little chapel of Saint Pierre. The soil is composed of silt-laden deposits and the 10 to 30 year-old Syrah vines are kept to a low yield to encourage concentration, balance and complexity in the wines. The fruit undergoes a strict sorting to ensure maximum quality. The grapes are destemmed, crushed and vinified over a 3-4 week period. The wine spends 12 months in oak barrels, about 20% new. Robert Parker raved, scoring it 95 points and saying "Young readers, or those with good longevity genes, should check out the enormous, backward, foreboding, black/purple-colored 2009 Cornas "Domaine de St.-Pierre. A classic Cornas, it offers up scents of beef blood, charcuterie, blackberries, new saddle leather, pepper and smoked game, mouthsearing levels of tannin and huge extract. It reminds me of some of the old Noel Verset Cornas made in the 1970s and early 1980s. Donít dare think about drinking it until it has reached age ten. It should age effortlessly for 25-30 years or more."
