Combe, Les Saveux, Sauman, Mazards, Les Eygas, Champelrose og Patou. Vinene lagres 12-14 måneder i nyere franske egetræsfade og tappes uden klaring eller filtrering.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (91-93 points):"The full-bodied 2016 Cornas (tasted from tank prior to bottling) shows great complexity in its aromas of plum, cracked pepper, licorice and herbal-stemmy notes (30% was fermented as whole clusters). It’s velvety and long on the finish. From 15 different parcels averaging 50 years of age, it spent 14 months in older (fourth-fill) barrels."

 

Jeb Dunnuck (92 points):
"The 2016 Cornas is a beauty that has more density and richness than the Saint Joseph. Blackcurrants, smoked herbs, violets, and plenty of pepper all give way to a full-bodied, rich, beautifully concentrated 2016 that has sweet tannins, a terrific mid-palate, and a big finish. It’s a classic Cornas to drink over the coming 10-15 years, and I suspect it will keep even longer."
