    Coming from the upper part of Cornas and seeing 24 months in 400-500 Liter barrels (none new), the 2012 Cornas Domaine du Coulet Billes Noires is an incredible effort that's up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Its inky purple color is followed by an awesome bouquet of cassis, bacon fat, olive, peppered meat and iron, with additional minerality coming through with air. Classic in every way, with full-bodied richness, stunning purity and integrated acidity, it's a big, brooding and concentrated effort that's reasonably approachable now due to its fruit and texture, yet won't hit prime time until 6-7 years after the vintage and will have two decades of longevity. Drink date: 2020-2040. Score - 96. (Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com, Dec. 29, 2014)
