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. Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested in small boxes, fully destemmed and lightly pressed. Vinification took place in sealed stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 30 to 32°C. Maceration lasted 12 to 15 days to achieve the maximum colour extraction. The wine was then matured for 14 months, with 85% aged in oak and 15% remaining in stainless steel tanks. The wine underwent regular racking before fining and bottling. Tasting Note
A full flavoured wine with aromas of ripe red fruits and spicy, smoky overtones. Made from 100% Syrah, it is powerful on the palate with big, spicy flavours but maintains a refined elegance and a fine, lingering finish. Serving Suggestion
This intense and full flavoured wine accompanies rich dishes such as a slow roasted shoulder of lamb, roasted venison and game dishes.
