Parker (88)

The deep ruby/purple-colored 1996 Cornas offers beautiful aromatics of jammy plums, blackberries, and cassis. The wine is excellent in the mouth, spicy, and medium to full-bodied, with exuberant, zesty acidity, and unobtrusive yet firm tannin.

Winespectator / James Suckling (96)

This is hitting its stride now, with cherry pit and bitter orange notes framing the mulled plum, blackberry and cherry fruit, all backed by roasted olive and aged tobacco. There's still rather strident tannins that may never fully give way. The last vintage before the young vine parcels were bottled separately for the Renaissance cuvée.
