The ‘Terres Brulées’ name is taken from the ‘roasted earth’ of the Rhône region. Made from 100% Syrah of low yielding vines 20 to 60 years in age, grown on the steep granitic soil slopes of the right bank of the Rhône river. This wine, the first of Jean-Luc’s private collection of four top Cornas wines, is a blend of up to 20 parcels which are truly representative of the Cornas appellation, and all of which Jean-Luc considers to be of suitably high quality for this cuvée. A very elegant wine with notes of ripe fruits such as blackcurrant and raspberries complemented by more spicy hints of liquorice and coffee. Very rich in the mouth, with powerful yet elegant tannins, spicy with great length.
