Johann Michel

About Johann Michel

Johann Michel crafts superb, high scoring Cornas that compete with the finest in the Northern Rhône for a fraction of the price. On par with the likes of Domaine Clape and Alain Voge, yet offering a 50% discount on Domaine Clape, Johann Michel's wines are "no-brainers well worth checking out" – Jeb Dunnuck.

Johann Michel farms a tiny four hectares across Cornas' finest Lieux-Dits; Bayonnet, Les Côtes, Chaillots and Saveaux. His wines "show the more polished, elegant side to the appellation, have gorgeous purity of fruit, and never lack for texture and depth."

Johann Michel Cornas Cuvee Jana 2017 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (95+)

Coming from the granitic soils of the Chaillot lieu-dit and vines planted in 2000, the 2017 Cornas Cuvée Jana is the top cuvée and spent 12-14 months in second- and third-fill demi-muids. Its deep purple color is followed by a powerful, ripe, sexy Cornas that offers rocking notes of black fruits, scorched earth, burning ember, smoked game, and hints of tapenade. Complex, deep, and layered on the palate, yet beautifully balanced, it's a knockout bottle of wine that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and knock your socks off over the following decade or more.

Johann Michel Cornas Cuvee Jana 2018 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (99)

There are two special cuvées from this estate. Looking first at the 2018 Cornas Cuvée Jana, it tastes like the essence of Cornas with its meaty, bloody aromas and flavors of scorched earth, ground pepper, rare steak, iron, cedar, and dark, almost blue fruits. Tight, tannic, and concentrated on the palate, this full-bodied effort packs incredible intensity and power yet stays lively, elegant, and weightless. It's a brilliant, brilliant Cornas, yet certainly not for those seeking instant gratification. It actually reminds me slightly of the incredibly age-worthy wines from Domaine Clape, and I suspect it will have a similar evolution. Hide bottles for 7-8 years and enjoy over the following two decades.
