2018 Franck Balthazar "Cuvée Casimir Balthazar" Cornas

SKU #1503390 93-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque ruby. Intense aromas of cassis, black raspberry, olive and star anise are complemented by a smoky mineral topnote and a touch of smoky bacon. Chewy and subtly sweet, offering lively dark berry preserve, floral pastille and licorice flavors and a spicy jolt of black pepper. Finishes very long and spicy, with fine-grained tannins and a building cherry note. (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Just like the 2017 version, the 2018 Cornas Cuvée Casimir Balthazar is a blend of Les Mazards and La Légre fruit. It's riper and richer, full-bodied and almost lush on the palate, then firm and chewy on the finish, where mixed berries and salted licorice notes mingle with hints of crushed stone. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2019)
