JOHANN MICHEL CORNAS CUVEE JANA 2015
Offered JUNE 16th, 2017
“One of the rising superstars in Cornas is without a doubt the young and incredibly talented Johann Michel. Creating the estate in 1997, he farms a little over four hectares (in the lieux-dits of Bayonnet, Les Côtes, Chaillots and Saveaux) all organically and makes a single St Péray and two Cornas: a classic Cornas and his flagship Cuvée Jana. The wines are all completely destemmed and aging occurs (on lees) in two- to four-year-old barrels. The wines show the more polished, elegant side to the appellation, have gorgeous purity of fruit, and never lack for texture and depth. They’re no-brainers well worth checking out.” – Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate

(94-96) points Wine Advocate: “A bigger, richer wine, the 2015 Cornas Jana is a tiny-production cuvée and the flagship release for the estate. Completely destemmed and aged in older barrels, it offers a killer bouquet of graphite, crushed rocks, new saddle leather and layers of black raspberry and black cherry fruit. This full-bodied, concentrated, tannic effort is going to rival, if not surpass, the 2010.”
