Thierry Allemand Cornas 'Chaillot' 2012
Organic farming and non-interventionist mentality dominate chez Thierry Allemand, pioneering five small hectares of vines in Cornas. Allemand’s wines are extremely special, regarded as some of the greatest coming out of the Northern Rhone. The 2012 ‘Chaillot’ is concentrated yet balanced, with flavors of smokey dark fruit, black pepper, and iron on the palate. Well-integrated tannin and zesty acidity make for a savory, age-worthy wine.
