Joe Czerwinski’s 2017 review for the Wine Advocate:

“Hints of crushed stone, bloody meat and blueberries mark the nose of the 2015 Cornas Les Grands Mûriers. A blend of several parcels, it’s full-bodied and ripe, but it has a certain reserve to it and some dusty tannins on the long finish. After a couple of years in the cellar, it should drink well for the next decade and a half.”

Decanted about three hours prior to dinner which was basically grilled steak three ways. This was an absolute joy already, if not still a glimpse into greater things yet to come. The 2015 Les Grands Mûriers is special. To start, the bouquet is beguiling. A positively feral example of Syrah with smoked bacon fat, tart dark brambles, deli case, Herbs de Provenance and new leather. On the palate, there was a ferrous minerality that accompanied the abundant dark fruits and spices meats. So compact and full of energy! I already love this wine and look forward to seeing what this does with some age. Already great with an extended decant; will age gracefully for twenty years, I’m sure of it.

Full of promise. Youthfully tannic, but still pleasant to drink. Love the acidity! Comes across as just a well made red wine, not showing the overt Syrah character that often dominates new world examples. Short term cellaring should pay off in spades.
