Tasting note from from 18.08.2020, Copyright Sebastian Bordthäuser

The Cornas "La Géniale Patronne" comes from granite weathered soils interspersed with clay and limestone silt. Made from 100% Syrah, the wine is a selection of young and old vines from the centerpieces of Barret's slopes. With an average yield of 25hl/ha, it is fermented in steel and then aged in concrete eggs.


Dark ruby red with black core.


The Purezza of Mattheiu Barrets Syrah always makes you take a deep breath, so clear and unadorned he knows how to work out the essence of the variety. The dark fruit of blackberries and mulberries is tartly countered by elderberries and wild raspberries, with subtle smoky notes in the top note, distinct iron notes remind of a freshly opened hare and sweet, warm blood; juniper and black pepper round off the formidable hunting luck.


The 2017 La Géniale Patronne from Domaine du Coulet is initially dominated by the tannins, which wrap themselves around the youthfully fresh fruit like fine, tightly woven panne velvet. Tightly woven and dense, they define the length of this exceptional Syrah rather than the overall volume or a pompous appearance. Nothing superficial gets in the way of the variety, its terroir and master, whose goals are clearly defined delicacy, finesse and an orchestral finish with peppery length.
