Thierry Allemand Cornas Collection
Impeccable stock offered from a trusted source in Europe for import by refrigerated seafreight this Fall.

Allemand needs no introduction to those who crave his wines, so we'll jump straight to the list:

Cornas Reynard 2017
6 bottles available at $385 per bottle

96 points, Vinous Media
"Glass-staining ruby. Powerful, deeply perfumed aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice, smoked meat and olive, along with a sexy floral overtone that gains strength as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with deeply concentrated, spice-laced blackberry, boysenberry, violet pastille and fruitcake flavors, while a smoky mineral flourish adds vibrant lift. Chewy tannins shape an extremely long, mineral-driven finish that shows superb power and insistent florality." (Drink between 2026-2036) - Josh Raynolds


Cornas Chaillot 2017
9 bottles available at $320 per bottle

95 points, Vinous Media
" Inky ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented black and blue fruits, licorice, smoked meat and olive paste on the intensely perfumed nose. Concentrated blackberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors take on a suave floral nuance with aeration. Densely packed but lively as well, finishing with outstanding clarity, harmonious tannins and superb, blue-fruit-driven persistence." (Drink between 2025-2035) - Josh Raynolds


Cornas Chaillot 2015
3 bottles available at $355 per bottle

96 points, Vinous Media
"Deep lurid ruby. Heady, smoke- and spice-accented boysenberry, cherry liqueur and violet aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a hint of olive with aeration. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering deeply concentrated yet energetic dark berry preserve, cola and floral pastille flavors, plus a suggestion of spicecake. The extremely long, velvety finish features an echo of juicy, sweet blue fruit and harmonious tannins that come in late." (Drink between 2024-2032)
- Josh Raynolds

Cornas Chaillot Magnum 2014
1 available at $695 

94 points, Jeb Dunnuck
"The inky colored 2014 Cornas Chaillot from Allemand offers a gorgeous perfume of black raspberries, olives, spring flowers, pepper and hints of bacon fat. Classic Syrah all the way, with medium to full-bodied richness, bright, yet integrated acidity and a great finish, it's already drinking nicely but is going to cruise for a decade or more in the cellar. These wines are always hard to come by as Allemand refuses visits from critics (at least I’ve never had an email or call returned). Nevertheless, I purchased these from Le Mangevins (don’t miss a chance to eat here!) in Tain l’Hermitage and they’re brilliant wines." (Drink between 2018-2028)

Cornas Chaillot 2007 Magnum
1 available at $930
91-93 points, Vinous Media
"Bright purple. Pungent, expressive aromas of blackberry, cracked pepper, Asian spices, graphite and tobacco. Spherical and silky, with fine-grained tannins framing the sweet dark berry and spice flavors. A sexy floral note comes up with air and carries through the long, juicy, impressively pure finish. This fat-free wine impresses more with elegance than power." - Josh Raynolds


Cornas Reynard 2004
2 bottles available at $325 per bottle
95 points, Vinous Media
"Deep, saturated purple. Explosively aromatic nose shows intense floral, blackberry, cassis and dark cherry, with a ripeness bordering on liqueur-like. Impossibly sweet and concentrated, with intense dark berry and plum flavors and an intoxicating, pungent floral quality. The fruit almost overwhelms the palate and builds impressively through the extremely long finish. A remarkable wine, with the power and balance to age for years." - Josh Raynolds
