Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
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.
Winemaking
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.
Tasting Note
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.
Serving Suggestion
