Alain Voge Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes 2010
The family Voge has been in Cornas for many generations. In 1958 Alain Voge, 4th generation, joined his father on the estate when the appellations Cornas and Saint Péray were at the time not very active. Alain decided to replant the slopes that had been abandoned for the last 30 years and to “estate bottle” the wines. Alain and his wife Elaine inherited the domaine from his father at a time when it was hardly worthwhile to harvest the grapes. After World War II a bushel of local peaches was worth more than a case of Cornas, so Alain supplemented his income by farming fruits and vegetables in the plains. Alain stubbornly tended the vines and made the wines regardless of its market value and it was not before the mid-1980s that producing Cornas became truly economic. By then the Domaine Alain Voge was producing high quality wines becoming the reference in the appellation with International critics such as Robert Parker describing the wines as “some of the best in the world”.
