2017 DOMAINE DU COULET Cornas Brise Cailloux 75cl (Rhone Valley, France)
Style - Spicy
Grapes - 100% Syrah
Tasting - OK, so this is going to be a divisive wine. You may not like the blueberry jam meets band aid- rubber-funk with black olive tapenade but for the northern Rhone Syrah over these are the indicators of quality. And this is quality.
FYI: Cornas is usually the funkiest of the funky northern Rhone reds. But Matthieu Barret seems to have tamed its wilder excesses.
