⭐️90/100⭐️ Domaine De Lises Cornas, 2013 📍Beaumont-Monteaux, Northern Rhône, France🇫🇷 🍇100% Syrah ⚡️13,5% Tasted: June 2020 The domaine is run by Maxime Graillot, son of legendary Alain Graillot. Armed with a winemaking master's degree, plus practical experience gained in Burgundy and South Africa, as well as with his father, Maxime decided in 2004 to split up the work with Alain and began his own adventure creating the estate of Domaine des Lises. Located just a bit south from his father’s estate, Maxime’s first job was to convert all his new vineyards to 100% organic, and with a philosophy of as little intervention as possible, and with use of fully destemmed clusters, his wines are immidiate winners. A little more fruit-focused than his father’s. A little more charming and a little more elegant. It must feel daunting for many new winemakers, following the footsteps of their legendary families... Maxime is one of those guys, who brilliantly continues the legacy. From the first sight, it looks like a traditional Northern Rhône-wine with its super dark red, almost purple, color. The bouquet opens up slowly with clear blackcurrant and blackberry to begin with. After a while, classic notes of black pepper, star anise, cloves and black tea appear in the nose. Freshly roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and tobacco follow, ended with a beautiful scent of wet wood, fresh leather and juniper. It’s quite mineral too with a hint of rusted metal. The palate is a potpourri of blackcurrant, dark cherry and dried cranberry - lighter than expected, but still intense. It’s spiced with pepper, paprika and cloves. There’s a light vegetal note too - especially of baked bell pepper and tomato. It’s got a long and lovely chalky finish with a bit of balsamico. This wine is a true beauty. The balance is out of this world, with extremely fine tannins and a delicate acidity to match the fruit and spices.
