Wine Advocate 89 points - Even better is the 2008 Cornas Vieilles Vignes. It exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with a surprisingly high level of concentration, copious blackberry and cassis fruit notes intermixed with hints of scorched earth, camphor, pepper and game, and a broad, savory personality. Enjoy it over the next 7-8 years. (Feb 2011)

Wine maker notes
Our Cornas "Les Vieilles Vignes” comes from syrah vineyards, more than 30 years old, on decomposed granite slopes, also called "gore”.

Food pairing
The perfect companion for beef, a shoulder of young lamb in its early years, and of game or strongest meat, after several years in a good cellar.

Producer
With over 70 parcels of vines totaling seven hectares, it is no wonder that Alain Voge sometimes seems distracted. Half in jest, he says that the reason he harvests so late is to figure out which vines are his. Lovably comic yet humble, honest, dedicated to his domaine, and incredibly hardworking, Alain Voge and his wife Elaine have been estate-bottling Cornas since the mid-1950s. In spite of producing what most critics, Parker and the Wine Spectator included, call some of the finest wines in the world, the Voges remain the kind of people one wishes one had for grandparents.
