It was an early, sun-kissed vintage. Sufficient rain in August alleviated the intense heat and drought conditions of the month of July. Yields were good. The wines are rich and powerful, but lively thanks to a touch of acidity in the reds, the distinctive feature of a magnificent vintage. Game in general, and especially hare, is the kind of meat that pairs ideally with the Cornas wine made by Mr Voge.

Skeins of graphite and smoke provide an alluring introduction to this seductively fruity, concentrated Syrah. Blackberry and mulberry flavors are vibrant yet concentrated, spiced with black pepper, leather and olive, edged by fine, supple tannins. Irresistible already, the wine will improve through 2040.

In almost every vintage, it's worth the price difference to step up to Voge's Vieilles Vignes bottling. Certainly, the 2016 Cornas Vieilles Vignes is another huge success, with hints of cracked pepper and briars accenting red plums and then picking up licorice on the long, softly dusty finish. Full-bodied, concentrated and supple, it's approachable now yet looks sure to evolve gracefully for at least a decade.
