#WINEWEDNESDAYS: Cornas – A Tasting of the “Scorched Earth”

April 26, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Cornas tasting

The southern-most of the Northern Rhone appellations, Cornas is the boldest and most tannic of them all. It sits below Crozes-Hermitage and is blessed with the same steep granite slopes as and high sunshine hours as Hermitage. Yet, throughout history the region has never quite captured the same spotlight as its brother in the north. This is starting to change today, with a resurgence of interest in a number of producers who have been making their mark in this tough region.

Thierry Allemand is among one of the passionate winemakers leading the foray to rekindle the romance for the wines of Cornas. He started out at the age of 18 learning the secrets of the trade from Domaine Robert Michel, all the while managing his own small private vineyard, and is credited as among one of the vignerons to bring Cornas into the spotlight. Auguste Clape who has been lavished praise by critics and connoisseurs as one of the greatest pioneers of the Northern Rhone, and was the first producer in Cornas to bottle his own wines. Alain Voge, another leading estate in the region has benefited from the assistance of Alberic Mazoyer, formerly of Chapoutier, and produces some of the boldest and most concentrated wines in Cornas.

Ginsberg+Chan invites you to join us in this relaxed and fun-filled evening to explore and appreciate the seriousness of the wines in this region. Discover just why the translation of Cornas as “Scorched Earth” is such an apt description for these bold and interesting wines.
