The Dumien name can be found mentioned in Cornas as far back as 1515. In 1925, before Cornas was recognized as an AOC in 1938, the family purchased the three and a half hectares of vineyards which constitute their current estate. Most of this land-three hectares of it-is found in the Patou vineyard, which has primarily granitic soils; the remainder is located in Les Savaux. The vines in Patou date back to the 1920’s, with some even exceeding 100 years old. After years of selling in bulk to negociants such as Delas, Chapoutier and Jaboulet, Domaine Dumien-Serrette began to bottle their own wine in 1983. This is a small producer who continues to use the traditional techniques which have been used since its inception. (bowlerwine.com)

Vinous 94
Inky ruby. Heady cherry and dark berry preserve scents show outstanding clarity and complementary smoky mineral and spice accents. Deep-pitched black currant and bitter cherry flavors deliver a suave blend of power and finesse, and a suave pastille flourish lends complexity. Shows impressive energy and spicy thrust on the impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, which leaves behind notes of candied flowers and sappy dark berries.
