Alain Voge Les Vieilles Vignes 2006

I recently tasted through quite a few Cornas wines as preparation for a tasting that I put on recently: in perhaps the majority of cases, I was disappointed with what I was tasting (many thin or overpriced wines) - and across a variety of price points too.  This wine stood out though as an exceptional example of Cornas.  An aroma of pepper, lavender, dried herbs and plums.  The palate is similar with quite some length, and a touch of that slightly coarse Cornas shiraz character.  An excellent wine that I highly recommend.  90 points.

Abv: 13%
Price: $130
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
