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 all the factors of a 'Grand Terroir'. Its exceptional microclimate,
granite soils and old vines contribute to the potential for making great wines. The
vineyard soils are made up of decomposed granite, which are free draining and
very poor in nutrients, ideal for viticulture.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and lightly pressed. Vinification took
place in sealed stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 30 and
32°C. The maceration process lasted for three weeks and the desired levels of colour
and flavour were extracted. The wine was then aged in oak barrels, 50% of which
was new oak.
Tasting Note
A stunning wine. Big, spicy and textured but retaining elegance, a classic Cornas
made from 100% Syrah, with a long, exquisite finish.
Serving Suggestion
A delicious red that goes well with game dishes and mature cheese
