Domaine Dumien Serrette Cornas Cuvee Patou 2016


100% Shiraz from a 1.5 Ha site in Cornas.

94 Points – Decanter Magazine.

This needs a decant to relax and reveal all but once it opens it sings with dark plums and chocolate and red fruits busting through the middle. It’s a powerfully built Cornas with structure and grainy tannins. Dark spices, mulberry, cassis and plums wrapped up in a beautifully minerally long palate. In fact, that minerality drives through the whole palate and the other characters linger beautifully outside it.

More Information

The Dumien family has lived in the Cornas region since the early 1500’s so they know their way around the vineyards. Winemaker Nicholas Serrette is the 4th generation of vignerons to make wines from this vineyard on the steep slopes of the Patou.

In Celtic, Cornas means “burnt earth,” in French it translates to “terres brulee” which tells you volumes about the dry, warm conditions on these steeply graded stopes. Soils are primarily granite; vineyards are small and challenging to cultivate, given the abrupt drops and eroded faces of many of Cornas’ hillsides. The

Vines are tended using organic principles and everything is picked by hand.
