Le Cornas du Domaine du Tunnel est un Cornas de très belle définition, dans un style moderne, sur une très jolie trame fruitée épicée. Ce vin arbore une robe grenat soutenu, aux reflets tirant sur le violet. Au nez, il est complexe et minéral. On retrouve des saveurs de violette, pivoine, puis de fruits noirs (cassis et mûre) sur fond délicatement grillé et épicé. La bouche s'ouvre par une attaque franche, puis affiche une belle concentration et une densité en évolution, avec une matière riche et suave. Les tanins sont bien enrobés par une expression aromatique à dominante de fleurs, de fruits noirs, de poivre et de fumé. Belle finale persistante qui atteste d'un bon potentiel de garde.

Terroir : sols granitiques, sélection d’une quinzaine de parcelles (lieux-dits : Sauman, Combes, les Côtes, les Mazards, Cayret, Patou, Les Eygas, Champelrose). Les vendanges sont manuelles.

Vinification : parcellaire. Puis l’élevage pendant 14 mois en fûts de 3 vins.

Accord mets/vin : côte de bœuf, pigeon, épaule d’agneau, magrets de canard.

The Estate Domaine du Tunnel

Stéphane Robert of the Domaine du Tunnel is asserting himself vintage after vintage as the revival of Cornas and Saint-Péray with wines of a modern style, with a fine, suave and very precise mouthfeel. One of the great rising stars of the Cornas and Saint Péray appellations to be discovered as soon as possible...

The Estate Sottimano

Rino Sottimano took over the estate in 1975. His son Andrea joined him in 1994 along with Elena and Claudia. The vineyard is located in the heart of the superb Barbaresco terroirs and the Cotta, Currà, Fausoni, Pajorè and Basarin crus and now covers 18 hectares. The vines are cultivated organically with the utmost respect for the terroir. The wines are aged in barrels according to Burgundy principles (not in tuns). The wines are neither filtered nor fined. The production of the estate is gradually joining the best references of the region with prices still very reasonable considering the growing reputation of the estate. Quote from Rino Sottimano: "I always believe that every great wine is the result of serious, conscientious and passionate work in the vineyards. This is why, from day one, I have always tried to avoid all chemical products and herbicides, to preserve the natural balance of our soils."
