ALAIN VOGE FONTAINES
A beautiful vintage from renowned winemakers. Bursting with flavors of dark fruit, spice, and hints of earth. It’s 2010 predecessor was rated 100 points by top critic Robert Parker!
2010 Vintage: “One of the few perfect Cornas wines I have ever tasted is the 2010 Cornas Les Vieilles Fontaines. Even better than it was last year from barrel, (…), it remains the most backward wine of this trio, boasting an extraordinary black/purple colour as well as a remark- able perfume of spring flowers, crushed rocks, lead pencil shavings, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, licorice and truffles. Deep, full-bodied, tannic and backward with everything perfectly integrated into its personality, this is a monumental Northern Rhone. Give it several years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25-30+ years.” Robert M. Parker Jr., Robert Parker – Wine Advocate (27/12/2012): 100/100.
