The notoriety of the Cornas vineyard dates back through the ages. Charlemagne, Saint Louis and Louis XV are cited as regular drinkers of Cornas wines. On the eve of the French Revolution, people spoke of the "black" wine of Cornas, and at the beginning of the 19th century wine from this vineyard was classed with the great wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Since that time, Cornas wine has gained recognition and acclaim among the great wines of the region.
