Cornas, Les Barcillants,Les vins de Vienne


Rich, leathery a little note of violets(?) deep dark color and long
lingering finish, oh did I mention it was priced at 19.99 USD? When I
opened it was just a tad green on the finish but by the time dinner arriver
(lamb chops on the grill) the wine had developed full and rich, chewy even.
I am definitely looking for more of this.

Les Vins de Vienne is a company started by Francois Villard, Yves Cuilleron, and Pierre Gaillard. They seem to be doing mostly northern Rhones, but also a CdP - owning some grapes and acting as a negocient.
I have a bottle of 2001 Vin de Pays des Collines "Sotanum" - a tiny appelation just outside of Cote Rotie. But I'm not really anywhere near wanting to open it yet.
