2002 Noel Verset Cornas
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, ST[90]

"By universal acclaim the rain-plagued 2002 vintage is regarded as the weakest of the 2000s in the entire Rhône Valley, if not the worst in a generation. You wouldn't guess that if you tried a bottle of the 2002 Cornas from Verset, which displays a highly floral, red fruit-dominated bouquet, with suggestions of peppery spices and fresh herbs. It possesses pinot-like weight and texture as well as flavor, offering gently sweet raspberry and cherry on the palate. The finish tails off a bit (not surprising for an '02) but this is an extremely pretty and balanced Cornas, with no obvious tannins and a refreshing touch of spiciness lingering. Drink up, to be on the safe side." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous (Jan 2015)
