DOMAINE GUILLAUME GILLES, CORNAS 2018
Red wine

Domaine Guillaume Gilles, Cornas 2018

Gilles had the great fortune to work with the legendary Robert Michel and the even greater fortune to be offered the purchase of 2.5ha of old-vine Les Chaillots from the master. This venerable fruit makes up the majority of the blend here and has been farmed organically. Gilles is firmly in the traditionalist camp, and his wines are for those patient souls who do not fear assertive tannins, even in mature wines. A powerful, aromatic, almost bitterchocolate liqueur de cassis, then a solid block of dark enrobed fruit that will only soften in the medium to long term.
