WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
"The medium to full-bodied 2016 Cornas Grand Classique is supple, plush and easy to drink. Plum, cola and spice notes appear on the nose and persist across the palate onto the soft, open-knit finish." Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
At the foot of the famous Hermitage hillside, the Cave de Tain l'Hermitage cooperative produces five appellation controlee wines, namely Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, St-Joseph, Cornas and St-Péray. Cave de Tain also owns a 21-hectare domaine within the prestigious Hermitage appellation. The Cave has established an enviable reputation for authentic wines bearing the full character of their individual terroirs, bringing out the best through careful and non-intrusive vinification methods.
Speaking at the inauguration of the new cellars, Jancis Robinson said "Cave de Tain has always been managed with a true passion for the production of quality wines and extensive consumer insight. It is one of the best cooperative wineries in France, but also one of the best producers of northern Côtes-du-Rhône wines."
