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
Located in a picturesque valley and surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation, the
Royes vineyard forms an amphitheatre and covers six hectares. This is a spectacular
Saint Joseph site, on South facing steep slopes, situated on the edge of Cornas. The
soils are made up of clay and limestone, which imparts elegance to the resulting
wine.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and lightly pressed. Vinification took
place in sealed temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 30 to 32°C.
Maceration lasted 10 days, during which time the desired level of colour, flavours
and fine tannins were extracted. The wine was aged in oak, of which 20% was new,
for a period of 14 months.
Tasting Note
Made from 100% Syrah, this lovely wine shows typical notes of black olives combined
with spicy, smoky undertones. Smooth, silky and concentrated.
