96 points James Suckling | A delicate nose of forest berries, dark cherries, blackcurrants, undergrowth, stones and baking spices. Medium body yet so ample and intense. Great concentration at the center, expanding all along. It’s well-balanced and harmonious with finely grained tannins, a pure and juicy core of berries, and crisp acidity. Expansive and long finish. Best after 2025.

95-96 Points Vinous | Dark violet. Offers dark berry preserves, fruitcake, smoky minerals, olive and pungent flower notes on the highly perfumed nose. Stains the palate with sappy black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors; black pepper and mineral accents add lift and back-end cut. Q
91-94 Points Wine Advocate | I tasted two components that will make up the bulk of the 2020 Cornas Renaissance, both still in foudre. From Patou and 15- to 20-year-old vines, a medium- to full-bodied sample featuring mentholated red plum notes, chewy tannins and mouthwatering acids (90 - 92).                  
93 Points Jeb Dunnuck | I loved the 2020 Cornas Renaissance, a ripe, fleshy, supple, and already undeniably delicious Cornas. Darker berries, plums, garrigue, and peppery game notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with lots of fruit and texture. It should evolve nicely for 10-12 years or more.
A wonderful expression of this domain's yellow Syrah, the Renaissance cuvée presents an intense garnet robe and harbours a complex bouquet; ripe fruit aromas are punctuated with toasted, floral and spiced notes and enveloped in fine-grained tannins. Winemaker Description.
