My favorite in the lineup was the 2016 Cornas Les Eygats, which has sensational purity and precision, as well as full-bodied richness and weight, integrated acidity, and terrific notes of cassis, black raspberries, violets and minerality. The purity, freshness and focus, as well as its depth of fruit, are what sets this stunner apart.

The 2016 Cornas les Eygats is aging in 50% new oak and will likely be bottled in March 2018. It’s inky in hue, with enthralling notes of crushed stone and ripe plums on the nose. It’s full-bodied, rich and velvety on the palate yet also fresh, bright and lively. This won’t need much cellaring to round into form; drink from 2020.

Deep ruby. Assertive black and blue fruit, licorice pastille, bacon and violet aromas are complemented by a smoky mineral accent. Seamless and broad on the palate, offering alluringly sweet boysenberry, cola and floral pastille flavors and a suave touch of exotic spices. Finishes with repeating mineral and dark fruit character, delivering smooth, well-knit tannins and impressive tenacity.
