2018 Ferraton Père et Fils "Lieu-Dit Les Eygats" Cornas

SKU #1531774 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Its saturated purple color is followed by a sexy, opulent, full-bodied Cornas that has abundant notes of blueberries, chocolate, smoked game, and peppery herbs. It has a wealth of texture, which I think at this point conceals plenty of underlying structure. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh black/blue fruits, exotic spices and incense and takes on a smoky mineral topnote with aeration. Stains the palate with spice-laced blackberry, boysenberry and violet pastille flavors that show a suave mix of richness and energy. Displays fine detail and finishes extremely long and floral, with smooth tannins sneaking in late. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Located higher above the village than many of the appellation's other parcels, the 2018 Cornas Lieu-Dit Les Eygats is a beauty, marrying notes of grilled beef with ripe black cherries and adding sexy touches of vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied, plush and concentrated without being heavy, it finishes long, with a dusting of ripe tannins and crushed stone. This is one Cornas that's ripe enough to drink young (preferably with a rare steak), yet should age well for a decade or more. (JC) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lively, with a mix of bramble, anise, plum paste and applewood notes that drive along nicely, carried by fresh acidity through the finish. Excellent range and detail. (JM) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark An intriguing blend of blackcurrant fruit, woody herbs and subtle coal smoke. Very round, but not terribly dense or extracted. The vibrant acidity does help to detract from the high alcohol. This has a good sense of purity, and the tannins are grippy and powerful but smooth. The oak is well-integrated. (MW) Inner quote mark (7/2021)
