2009 Domaine du Coulet Cornas "Billes Noires"

2009 Domaine du Coulet Cornas "Billes Noires"

Wine Spectator 96pts: "Dark and densely packed, yet terrifically racy, with plum sauce, pastis and crushed blackberry fruit wound with charcoal and roasted tobacco leaf notes, but carried by riveting acidity. A long, singed iron note hangs on the finish. Shows amazing power and vivacity. A new paradigm for Cornas. Best from 2013 through 2023. 50 cases imported."


Wine Advocate 92pts: "The 2009 Cornas Domaine du Coulet Billes Noires possesses a black/purple color, terrific fruit, an unctuous, thick texture, abundant roasted meat, black fruit, damp earth and forest floor characteristics as well as a hint of flowers in the background. It is more accessible than the backward, massive 2009 Cornas Les Terrasses du Serre, but even the latter wine has a certain seductive appeal. Both of these 2009s should drink well for 10-15 years." 


IWC 92pts: "Dark violet color. Intense aromas and flavors of black raspberry and candied flowers, with a bright mineral overtone. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering a suave blend of depth and energy. Closes on a sweet note of dark berry preserves, leaving smoke and floral notes behind."
