Domaine Courbis dates from the 16th century and has been handed down from father to son since the start of the 20th century. Now under the dynamic partnership of two brothers: Laurent, who is responsible for winemaking, and Dominique who looks after the vineyard. The vineyard currently extends to 35 hectares (including eight hectares in Cornas, five hectares in Saint Joseph Blanc and 19 hectares in Saint Joseph Rouge) in the communes of Châteaubourg and Cornas. The vines are planted on steep hillsides facing South and West. The wine cellar is modern and equipped with temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and oak casks. The wines of Domaine Courbis are of extremely high quality and are consistently met with worldwide acclaim.
Situated on the right bank of the river Rhône, not far from the city of Valence, the site of Cornas combines the factors of a 'Grand Terroir'. Its exceptional microclimate; the poor, free-draining, granite soils and the old vines contribute to the potential for making great wines.
The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and lightly pressed. Vinification took place in sealed temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 30-32°C. The maceration lasted three weeks during which time the desired level of colour was extracted. The wine was aged in oak barrels, a proportion of which were new.
A full bodied and satisfying red wine made from 100% Syrah with a hint of blackcurrants, raspberries and violets in the background combined with spice and smoky notes.
At room temperature to accompany game and mature cheese.
