Appellation: Côtes du Roussillon
Located in the southern part of Cornas, Dumien-Serrette is the quintessential old-school family-run Rhône Domaine. The wines tend to showcase the classic granitic backbone for which this appellation is known, along with cassis and sauvage mid-palate flavours, so typical of fine Cornas. The 2018 has all the expected earthy elements but also a deliciously pure core of richly concentrated fruit. Full-bodied on the palate without feeling sweet or overly chunky.
