    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 a granitic rock with limestone and a silty deposit. This 2009 Domaine de Saint Pierre vintage displays an almost black colour with ruby-tinted glints. The nose is powerful and expressive: it gives off aromas of baked red and black berry, as well as liquorice with subtle empyreumatic notes. The palate is perfectly structured by firm tannins that evolve into a beautiful breadth. This 2009 Cornas St Pierre has a lavish finish on fruits and length, which foreshadows a long ageing.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Young readers, or those with good longevity genes, should check out the enormous, backward, foreboding, black/purple-colored 2009 Cornas Domaine de St.-Pierre. A classic Cornas, it offers up scents of beef blood, charcuterie, blackberries, new saddle leather, pepper and smoked game, mouthsearing levels of tannin and huge extract. It reminds me of some of the old Noel Verset Cornas made in the 1970s and early 1980s. Don't dare think about drinking it until it has reached age ten. It should age effortlessly for 25-30 years or more.
