Cornalin Carmin des Pierres, Claudy Clavien - 2020

There is no doubt that this Carmin des Pierres will be one of the greatest Cornalin of the vintage. Slightly liquorice and still reserved aromatically - which is a good omen for a red wine to be kept - it offers superb substance and very fine tannins. It is a stretched out, fresh wine, very promising. To be cellared as a matter of urgency because there are few of them! Decant for an hour or two to drink young.

His parents, owners of 2 hectares, gave him the love of the land, and later the love of wine. After graduating in viticulture and oenology from the Changins school, he created La Cave des Champs in 1986 and spent a lot of time determining the suitability of each of the grape varieties for its terroir. Without compromise, he also works on the balance of the plant, in order to obtain the lowest yields, with a view to optimising the concentration of the berry; this results in the right maturity of the fruit, favouring both the structure of the wine and the freshness of the fruit. In the last few vintages, the decision was even taken to go organic, under the impetus of his daughter Shadia, who had recently arrived. The wines continue to gain in depth and precision of fruit, with a density that increases all the more as the yields decrease. All the grape varieties benefit...
