    Although les Rieux is planted at 350m altitude, in a sandy granitic soil to the south west of the appellation, the south facing vineyards soak up the sun throughout the whole day. Guillaume gave this wine a shorter cuvaison, although otherwise vinified and aged it in the same way as the Chaillot cuvee below. It is showing really well already, is very floral(violets), supple and elegant but with a distinct mineral stamp. Excellent vfm. For drinking now to 2024.

    This is Guillaume’s top cuvée of Cornas from 33 year old vines planted on the steep exceptional hillside of Chaillot. Following Robert Michel’s path, the grapes were not destalked and the wine has been aged in two thirds 400 litre barrels and bottled without fining or filtration. A natural, very unforced elegance here with attractive rich, irony, blackcurrant fruit, touch of spice and hint of menthol, good substance and extremely long on the finish. For drinking now to 2027.
