Wine Advocate-Parker :
Cuilleron's 2017 Cornas Lieu Dit les Côtes comes from vines planted in 1911 in the southern portion of the appellation. It's partially destemmed, fermented with indigenous yeasts, then matured 18 months in oak (50% new). Violets, crushed stone and purple raspberries mark the nose, while the full-bodied palate is silky from start to finish, finishing with slightly sanguine notes and lingering tannins. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent results.
