Notes from the Winemaker:
This 2017 vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential.

The crop is manually harvested. Upon arrival in the cellar, each grape variety is sorted, destemmed and vatted separately. The Syrah is vinified in large oak Foudres and the Grenache in stainless steel tanks. The extraction is done by punching down and the frequency is determined by tasting. Blending takes place after malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes

A great vintage for Vinsobres in 2017. Great elegance, it reveals all the richness of its soil, marked by beautiful Syrah on limestone. Well balanced and complex in the mouth, it offers a nice acidity, freshness and a hint of bitterness reminiscent of limestone.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A bright and fresh style, with a mix of raspberry, cherry and red currant coulis flavors, underscored by light bramble and mineral accents. Shows good juicy energy through the finish, revealing latent depth. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2020 through 2025. 2,400 cases imported." - JM (December 2019)

89+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Bottled just a month before this tasting, the 2017 Vinsobres les Cornuds seems to have closed down a bit since last year. Cola and red fruits mingle on the nose and medium to full-bodied palate, picking up hints of dried spices and leather. It's robust and a bit rustic, in a good, wholesome way." - Joe Czerwinski (August 2019)

Jeb Dunnuck:
"Garrigue, underbrush, and peppery notes dominate the 2017 Vinsobres Les Cornuds, which is medium-bodied, with a supple, elegant texture, plenty of tannins, and a good finish. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (August 2018)
