All Vintages of this wine

The bright and almost black 2010 Cornas Saint Pierre gives off Morello cherry, cassis, camphor and woodland aromas. The palate is powerful with firm tannins and a very persistent finish. This 2010 Domaine de Saint Pierre possesses a great ageing potential. Located near the small chapel of Saint Pierre, on Cornas tableland, Domaine de Saint Pierre is the property of Domaine Paul Jaboulet-Aîné. Its 3.9 hectares of Syrah are facing south and are composed of granitic rock with limestone and a silty deposit.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Cornas Domaine de St.-Pierre is a more typical savage, nearly uncivilized effort exhibiting an inky/purple color as well as lots of pepper, beef blood, camphor, forest floor and blackberry characteristics. It is a wine of extraordinary intensity and superb concentration, but it is so tannic and backward that it needs to be forgotten for a decade. Even though it is in bottle, it has not evolved much since I tasted it from barrel last year.
