Lot #551. Matthieu Barret (Domaine du Coulet) Cornas Les Terrasses du Serre 2009

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Rhône, Cornas.
Score: 95 WA.
"Classic Cornas, with chewy, meaty, bloody notes of black fruits, lavender, olive tapenade and violets, this beauty has everything you could want from a Syrah from these steep granite slopes. Full-bodied, concentrated and beautifully textured, with integrated acidity and plenty of tannin, drink it anytime over the coming decade or more. To say I was blown away by these new releases from the young Matthieu Barret would be an understatement. Pulling from close to 24 acres in Cornas (which is a sizeable portion) and a wealth of old vines . . . . The Les Terrasses du Serre is a slightly smaller production releases that comes from the lieux-dits les Arlettes, les Reynards and la Patronne. It's aged 18 months in mostly older barrels, but also sees some time in concrete eggs." eRobertParker.com #216, Dec 2014
