Brand Alain Verset

Alain was joined by his daughter Emmanuelle and Domaine A & E Verset was born.

Emmanuelle proudly continues the traditions of her father and her great-uncle, while making improvements to address today’s climate challenges. She has transitioned the holdings to organic viticulture, adjusted trellising to leave as much vegetation as possible during the growing season and began seeding cover crops in the lower plain vineyards.

The vines are located in the heart of Cornas on 5 plots (Mazard, Champelrose, la Côte, les Côtes and a small part of Reynard).

The flagship Cornas from Emmanuelle Verset has a complex nose of blackberries and cherries, with toasty, smoky and floral aromas. The mouth is marked by the presence of tannins with a lovely freshness.

Opaque magenta. Expressive, smoke- and mineral-tinged cherry and dark berry aromas pick up suggestions of olive, peony and baking spices with air. Broad and chewy on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis, fruitcake and floral pastille flavors that tighten up and take a sweeter turn as the wine opens up. Finishes sappy, focused and very long, with repeating florality and steadily building tannins.
