Mark Haisma 2021 Cornas


“Old vines again, around 60 years old, from the terraced vineyards just before St Peray. Grown on the classic decomposed granit soils. The fermentation is not really classical for Cornas. Lots of whole bunch, very long ferment, starts cold and builds up heat to finally get to around 32c. I really am looking for the fruit expression of syrah, I want minerality and fruit, but I also want the strength of cornas. Elevage in 2, 3 use barrels, never older but never new.” -Mark Haisma

We are really excited to bring Mark’s Cornas into the U.S. again for our customers. We know what such labor of love this is for Mark to go through the effort of vinifying a wine in the Northern Rhone and are thrilled with how brilliant the finished product has turned out to be.

Notes from

Nine barrels, one new – first time this has been made with some new oak. Cask sample.
Oozing sensuous blackcurrant, pepper and suave black fruits. Ripe and feline. (MH)

About Mark

“He seems to have struck gold. His wines have an excellent balance between fruit, expression and refreshment without being in any way wimpish. The wines are also, appetisingly, bone dry.” -Jancis Robinson

Mark spent a decade working together with the late Dr. Bailey Carrodus of Yarra Yering in the Yarra Valley. His passion for making a wine that expresses the purity of the fruit and further reflects the soil they are grown is what drew him to Burgundy. He makes wines that are bright and fresh and uses a ‘hands off’ approach to create a pure expression of the terroir.

Mark is on Jancis Robinsins list of “Overperformers” for 2014.
