M. Chapoutier Cornas Les Arènes 2014

The Cornas Les Arènes is part of Chapoutier's Prestige collection, a range of classic Grand Crus that reflect the true essence of their respective Rhône Valley appellations. Cornas is made from 100% hand-harvested Syrah grapes which are sourced from the Les Arènes vineyard, part of which is located on decomposing granite, known locally as “gore”, the other is on alluvial clay-limestone soil. This kind of soil produces powerful, meaty wines with good tannin, whilst the granite adds power and acidity to the wine. After vinification, maturation lasts for 14-16 months with 80% of the wine going into oak barrels (100% French) and the remaining 20% is aged in concrete tanks, which preserves the fruit and minerality. Intense red in colour Les Arènes Cornas displays ripe fruit aromas, raspberry and blackcurrant jams. On the palate blackberries, spices, morello cherry with dense and tight tannins and long satisfying finish.
