  • The epitome of fine Cornas, this is Domaine Courbis' most dramatic wine. Showcasing great fruit intensity, a silky suppleness on the palate, and integrated new oak flavors, this is the perfect combination of power and elegance.

Situated on the right bank of the river Rhone, not far from the city of Valence, the site of Cornas combines the factors of a 'Grand Terroir'. This one hectare Cornas La Sabarotte vineyard is situated at 70 metres above sea level and is considered to be among the very best sites of the appellation. It has very old, low yielding vines which were mostly planted in 1947 (some are even older). The soil is a thin decomposed granite-limestone layer over solid granite rock, which has poor fertility and is free draining, encouraging the vine to develop strong root systems. The site is perfectly orientated to the south east optimising the influence of the sun on the ripening vines.

Domaine Courbis dates from the 16th century and has been handed down from father to son since the start of the 20th century. It is now under the dynamic partnership of two brothers: Laurent, who is responsible for winemaking, and Dominique who looks after the 35-hectare vineyard. The estate includes eight hectares in Cornas, five hectares in Saint-Joseph Blanc, and 19 hectares in Saint-Joseph Rouge, in the communes of Chateaubourg and Cornas. The vines are planted on steep granite hillsides and their polished wines are wonderful examples of modern vinification blended with traditional viticulture and top-quality terroir. The Domaine Courbis wines are of extremely high quality and are consistently met with worldwide acclaim.
