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

St Joseph is situated at the confluence of the Rhône and Isère rivers on the right
bank of the Rhône. Domaine Courbis owns the most southern parcels of the St
Joseph appellation, on very steep and terraced slopes, with a southern and eastern
orientation. The soils comprise 30% clay and limestone, and 70% decomposed
granite, which retains the heat from the day and promotes a long slow ripening
period for the grapes. A green harvest takes place to encourage more mature
flavour compounds and increase the quality of the berries. The average yield is 37
hectolitres per hectare.
The grapes were hand harvested in small boxes, 100% destemmed and lightly
pressed. Vinification took place in sealed stainless steel closed vats at controlled
temperatures of between 30 to 32°C. Maceration lasted between 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.
