Reyneke, Cornerstone 2018


This classic Bordeaux-style wine combines freshness with intense concentration. A feast for the taste buds, as there is a bit of everything to discover in the wine. From cassis to violets and from tobacco leaf to a fine minerality (graphite). With balance, fresh acidity and structured tannins. Also, this wine has a nice aging potential (7 to 10 years)

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
