Cornas Wine Region Guide

Unveiling Cornas: Beyond the Shadows of Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, Lies a Symphony of Syrah's Finest


Last updated: March 20, 2024


There is no shortage of vinous celebrities in the northern Rhône Valley. The undisputed kings of the region are the finest wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. Syrah grapes from these appellations are crafted into exquisite wines, adored by collectors and critics worldwide. The immense hype surrounding these two regions overshadows the many other treasures waiting to be discovered here. The modest (in reputation but not in quality) appellation of Cornas definitely qualifies. It produces some of the Rhône’s finest Syrah; these concentrated, mineral-edged wines are dark in color and rich in tannin. It’s time for them to step into the limelight.
