After the élevage, the wines are assembled to make a single cuvée known as “Terre Brulée”. The bottling takes place after two winters have passed. All work is done by gravity. The wine is never fined nor is it filtered. There is a single bottling of the entire lot. We have been buying the wines of the Domaine Lionnet since the 2004 vintage. Their Cornas is a true classic: firm, sturdy, rigorously tannic, explosively aromatic, complete and satisfying. We are indebted to Bernard Levet for his wise counsel in leading us to the doorstep of the formidable Domaine Lionnet in Cornas. We have the privilege of purchasing 24,00 bottles and 90 magnums per vintage.
