Domaine Mucyn Hypsos Cornas 2018
The dark, opaque, almost black-red hue of our Cornas displays purple tints in its youth, which take on beautiful amber tones over time. The wine is an explosion of red fruit on the nose, where subtle hints of violets and intense notes of pepper can also be detected.
With age, Domaine Mucyn Hypsos Cornas offers up aromas of truffle, licorice and cooked fruit. This wine, for laying down, is instantly seductive due to the power of its tannins and later, due to their smooth and velvety texture..
Food pairing suggestions: This wine, ideally enjoyed at 16°C, pairs wonderfully well with red meats. With age, it is perfect with game..
This 100% Syrah comes from vines with an average age of ten years. They grow on a micro-terroir composed of granite and saprolite with schist, lying at an altitude of 320 m. The planting density is 7,000 vines per hectare.
As with all the Domaine’s vines, this plot will be organic in 2022. Vineyard work includes de-budding, thinning and green harvesting to obtain the best maturity, while managing the yield (40Hl / ha). Harvesting, of course, must be carried out by hand and usually takes place the second fortnight of September.
The harvested grapes are destemmed but not crushed. We carry out a cold pre-fermentation maceration and then launch the alcoholic fermentation. Maceration continues for 28 days with daily cap-punching operations. We keep a careful eye on the temperatures. Once completed, the wine is aged for 18 months in barrels before going into the bottle that will grace your table.
