Domaine Mucyn Aquilon Cornas 2016
A prized wine from one of the lesser-known appellations of the Northern Rhône, packed full of pepper spice and black fruit.
What we say
Powerful and intense with sophisticated tannins. Notes of liquorice, blackcurrant and pepper. Stick in the cellar for a few years to get the very best out of it as it will age gracefully.
What they say
The dark, opaque, almost black-red hue of our Cornas displays purple tints in its youth, which take on a beautiful amber tone over time. The wine is an explosion of red fruit on the nose, where subtle hints of violets and intense notes of pepper can also be detected. With age, the wine offers up aromas of truffle, liquorice and cooked fruit. This wine, which can be laid down for many years, has instant appeal due to the power of its tannins, which later acquire a smooth and velvety texture.
