Thierry Allemand one of the protégées of the now retired Robert Michel, is assuming the role of de facto wine master of the somewhat underrated village of Cornas. Despite their precipitous nature, the slopes of Cornas are sheltered from the Mistral; their vines ripen earlier and their wines have a distinctive, powerful character.

Words such as ‘enigmatic’ and ‘maverick’ find common currency when Thierry Allemand is the subject of conversation. Somewhat misanthropic by nature, he clearly relishes the panoramic views from his remote winery, located at an altitude of 400 metres on the St Romain-de-Lerps plateau. His wine-making is highly individual, idiosyncratic perhaps, with high densities and often late harvests informing a style which can be pleasingly pragmatic.
