Reviews 94 points Vinous "Youthful violet. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of blackberry and boysenberry, joined by suave Indian spice and incense notes as the wine opens up. Youthfully nervy and focused on the palate, offering bright blue fruit, violet and spicecake flavors that show outstanding clarity and mineral lift. Closes sappy and pure, showing harmonious tannins and leaving a vibrant blue fruit note behind. (JR)"

About Thierry Allemand

Nestled in the heart of Cornas, Thierry Allemand has emerged as a visionary, passionately reviving abandoned Syrah vineyards and championing organic farming practices since the 1980s. Today, with five hectares under cultivation, Allemand is hailed as one of the appellation's most revered producers.

Thierry Allemand's winemaking philosophy aligns with that of pioneers like Marcel & Mathieu Lapierre and Didier Barral. He emphasizes natural fermentations, minimal sulfur additions, and individual parcel fermentations to achieve unparalleled finesse and purity in his wines. Allemand employs whole-cluster fermentation in open-topped oak and stainless steel cuves, followed by manual cap punching. The wines are aged in a combination of oak barrels and foudres for up to 24 months before blending, and ultimately bottled unfined and unfiltered.

The vineyards of Thierry Allemand are spread across diverse terrains, each presenting its own challenges. Predominantly lying on granite subsoil with some clay, the sun-soaked, south-by-southeast-facing slopes allow for early ripening. Thierry's unwavering commitment to vineyard rehabilitation and terroir-driven winemaking has brought prestige and recognition to even the smallest Cornas lieux-dits.

Allemand's wines are a testament to his relentless quest for purity and terroir expression. They possess an unparalleled balance of power, fragrance, and finesse, redefining the standards for Syrah. With two legendary cuvées—Reynards, characterized by its structure and minerality, and Chaillot, a classic, gutsy, slow-to-mature wine—Thierry Allemand has captured the essence of Cornas' unique terroir, enchanting wine enthusiasts worldwide. His devotion to quality and innovation has rightfully earned him a cult status, making Thierry Allemand a true hero of Cornas.
