A fairly civilized Cuvée, easy to approach for the uninitiated. A pleasant wink from this Cru, often regarded as rustic... !

Wine SpectatorThis bristles with energy, as briary structure pushes waves of bay leaf, lilac, savory, pepper, cassis, crushed plum and blackberry paste along. Shows a grippy edge on the finish, with iron and alder notes checking in. Best from 2020 through 2032.

Wine AdvocateLeading off the two Cornas releases, the 2015 Cornas Cuvee Coteaux is a fresher, more lively wine that has a deep purple, almost blue-tinged color with notes of liquid violets, new saddle leather, black raspberries, cassis and freshly crushed rocks. It stays tight and compact on the palate, yet has medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannin and surprisingly bright acidity. I'd like more mid-palate depth, but it's good.
