Description

“In a cooler vintage like 2016, la Louvée’s southern exposition is a tremendous boon. The 2016 Cornas la Louvee starts with an absolutely gorgeous nose of Christmas spice and licorice. That’s complemented on the palate by rich, plummy fruit, ample weight and concentration and a long, complex, silky finish. Already approachable, it should only get better over the next 2-3 years, then drink well for at least a decade.” 94 points, Wine Advocate (JC)

“This has a compact core of juicy black currant and black cherry compote flavors, held in check by mouthwatering bay, chalk and savory notes for now. The long finish has mouthwatering cut and drive. When the fruit melds with the structure, this will be very solid indeed. Best from 2024 through 2035. 410 cases made, 100 cases imported.” 94 points, Wine Spectator— JM
