'Pierre-Marie also excelled in 2013, and his Cornas Renaissance offers fleshy, ripe, full-bodied notes of powdered rock, cassis, black raspberry and ground herbs. With time in the glass, it becomes dominated by its mineral-component and it gains mid-palate depth and richness. It will drink reasonably well on release, but have 15 years or more of overall longevity. 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Tasted in components: #1, from Patou: Highly perfumed aromas of fresh red and dark berries, violet and fennel. Juicy and energetic on the palate, with good lift and cut to its black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Closes tangy and bright, with silky tannins adding shape. #2, from young vines in Reynard: Deeper and darker in profile, with black and blue fruit scents and a touch of smokiness. Sappy blueberry and cherry compote flavors firm up with a little air and show very good clarity. #3, from Petite Côte: Tighter and wilder on the nose, displaying intense dark berry and game aromas and a hint of white pepper. Taut and sharply focused, showing good lift to its bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors. Finishes with a smoky quality, the gripping tannins building slowly. 91-92 points Vinous
