2009 Jean Luc Colombo Vallon de L'Aigle Cornas
Produced only in great vintages, the Vallon de l'Aigle is a great wine. Very dark and strong. Dominant note of violet, wild blueberry with a hint of incense, tobacco and juniper. Perfect balance, a "Grand Vin" with a lot of complexity. Very intense, beautiful volume, strong and silky tannins. Aromas of gooseberry and blackcurrant with sweet spices. Le Vallon de l'Aigle can defy time!
“Tightly focused and very intense, with a fresh sanguine edge followed quickly by tangy white pepper and violet notes. The core of plum skin, cassis and linzer torte waits in reserve. The finish is sleek and very long, with a great buried iron note. Shows a kiss of modernity, but is firmly grounded in its terroir. Best from 2012 through 2022. 65 cases made.” – 95 Wine Spectator
“Bright purple. Fresh blackberry and cassis aromas are complicated by cracked pepper, violet and pungent herbs. Suave, alluringly sweet dark berry flavors are underscored by smoky mineral and floral qualities and lifted by tangy acidity. Grows spicier with aeration, finishing with notes of star anise and black pepper and superb length.” – 93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
