Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Cornas Temenos is the first vintage of this biodynamic bottling. Sourced from the lieux-dits of Saint-Pierre (near the top of the appellation) and the eastern-facing portion of Reynard, it aged in barrels, 20% of which were new. Pencil shavings frame cassis fruit in this firm but not hard rendition of Cornas. It's medium to full-bodied, with additional notes of blueberries and crushed stone on the silky, dusty finish.
