Cornas AC, 2011

Grower: Guillaume Giles
Region: Cornas, Rhone, France

Size: 75cl bottle

Gilles produced his first vintage in 2007 having inherited his vines and cave from his mentor, Robert Michel. The Syrah vines are thirty one years old and the domaine extends to 2.5 hectares, all withing the Chaillot sub zone of Cornas and its granite under clay and limestone soils. The approach is natural and authentic with regard to both the viticulture and winemaking - no de stem, native yeasts, no fining or filtration. Elevage in old 600 L barrels.
