Domaine Durand 2011 Premices Cornas

Posted by Keith Wallace

Domaine Durand is an old family estate taken over by the dynamic duo of two brothers, Eric and Joel Durand, in 1991. It’s a small, 13-hectare property that straddles the wine regions of Cornas and St. Joseph. Here, the approach to winemaking is modern and minimalist. Their moderate yields and judicious use of new oak frame their remarkable wines perfectly.

Wine Review

Deep layers of black currant, burnt sandalwood, and fennel open into loose rosemary, garrigue, and laurel framework. The rich weight of creamy tannin and lilac are ladled over a luscious core of blackberries—a luxuriously delicious wine.

  1. This is a very elegant 100% Syrah wine! I was absolutely thrilled to discover its depth and strong hints of black raspberry and spring flowers. Decant it about two hours before serving and pair it with red meat or wildfowl, I went with a herbed lamb fillet. Don’t be fooled by its price, it tastes DIVINE!
