I think it's the other way around (or used to be): 'C' stands for

I thought the SC was the more ageable- certainly sells for more!


Yes, you're right. SC is for "selection coteaux", which IIRC is older
vines (and hence more age worthy). I was thinking of C vs the regular
Cornas, where the vines are grown on the flat. At least in the past
there were 3 cuvees, I don't know if they're all imported to the states.

Heading your way into the heat tomorrow, will be passing through NY on
the way to the even hotter DC (gasp).
