Gaec du Lautaret 2019 Emotion (Cornas)

This spicy, perfumed Syrah is produced by Eric and Joël Durand, who also make an eponymous series of Northern Rhône wines. Rich and brawny, it's packed with flavors of crème de cassis accented by flecks of espresso powder, cacao and pencil lead. There's no denying the massive, weighty feel of Cornas from this hot vintage but the wine also offers a lift of minerality and luminous fruit profile. Approachable young, the wine will improve through 2040 and hold further. Anna Lee C. Iijima
