As to the 2015 reds, I wasn t able to taste the 2015 Cornas Vieilles Fontaines, but based on the showing of the Vieilles Vignes, I have no doubt it will be a sensational wine. As to the young vine cuvée, notes of wild herbs, peppered meats, garrigue, and sweet currants and blackberries all emerge from Voge's 2015 Cornas les Chailles, and it has full-bodied richness and incredible purity. As always, it has a polished, seamless style, yet it is 100% Cornas through and through. It should drink nicely in its youth and last for 15+ years.
