The 2011 Cornas La Geynale comes from 80-year-old vines planted in the southern end of the appellation. The wine was slightly reduced, making judgment somewhat hazardous. Nevertheless, it is loaded and huge in the mouth with gigantic fruit and colossal extract. Given its richness, there is none of the painful tannins and rusticity that Cornas can sometimes possess. I’ll retaste it next year from bottle and, hopefully, have a better handle on it. Rated: (92-95 points); Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

While I may think the quality is perhaps higher with the Granit 60 this vintage, I always prefer the style of La Geynale. I’ll buy a few bottles for my second son – Eddie the Eagle – born in 2011. Black fruit, chocolate, pepper, meaty, graphite, dried herbs, some malt/raisin character. Full bodied, firm tannin, tense and full, bramble fruit – feel the minerals – feel it! Grainy and full on the finish. Such a mass of tannin and fleshiness here. Very good, but needs plenty of time. Rated : 94+ Points Gary Walsh
