Verset Cornas 1985

Opened a bottle of the Verset Cornas from 1985 with some friends yesterday. With only ½ hour in the decanter, the nose was rich, with high-toned Syrah notes, a bit of olive (but not as much as you’d get from Clape), and a hefty serving of “merde.” The wine had great acid and the palate was rich, holding up in the glass for several hours. It turned out to be a high point in our tasting, alongside some surprise Barberas, a beautiful 1994 Sandrone Cannubi which was perfectly ready, and a couple of nice Chateauneufs. The 1985 is very hard to find, but if you come across a well-stored bottle, buy it without hesitation.
