Other text
The vineyard belonging to Cornas holds a high reputation, and has done for very many years. Charlemagne, Saint Louis et Louis XVth are often referred to in context to Cornas. On the eve of the French Revolution people spoke of the " Black wine " produced in Cornas and in the 19th Century it was given equal rating with the wines of Chateauneuf du Pape. Similarly to Côte-Rotie and Condrieu, hard working conditions on the lands led to large scale rural exodus.
