Cornas Harmonie, Guy Farge 2018
100% Syrah, its shows dense notes of dark fruits, black tea, violets, smoke and minerals. The mouth reveals well present yet already elegant tannins and a long finish.
Why we love this:
Despite the youth, this wine is enjoyable to drink now. The balance of flavours is exquisite, and the tannic structure very sympathetic.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
With 22 hectares of prime sites in the Northern Rhone, this family owned domaine is highly regarded.
Since Guy’s son Thomas has taken over the winemaking, the wines have even gone up a notch. Wine making is hands off and respectful of the fruit: whole bunch ferments, native yeasts, low extraction and are aging mostly in old barrels. These are wines worth seeking out.
