Matthieu Barret Cornas Billes Noires Rouge 2016 *Bio

$150.00

The deep black cherry colour expresses in the glass an intense bouquet of black fruits mixed with animal and notes of camphore. The palate with a full attack develops on a mellow body that diffuses intense cocoa flavours. The generous tannins in no way outweigh the flamboyant length of this very expressive vintage.

Winery Profile:
Installed since 1998, Matthieu Barret, 45 years old young winemaker, exploits 20 ha planted on terraces exposed towards the Levant in “Cornas” appellation. On this soil, made up of very degraded old granite named “gore”, Matthieu Barret has the ambition to create 100% grape‘s terroir wines.

“High wines are made of “simples” grapes. Any winemaking, even perfect, cannot create what we can get on a natural way. Grape holds this “magic”. So, we cannot destroy it. Our winemaking is “flexible” to let wine to do as it likes in order to express its soil and its vintage”.
