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. It is 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 and the cellar is modern and
equipped with temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and oak casks. The
polished wines of Domaine Courbis are of extremely high quality and are consistently
met with worldwide acclaim.


Vineyard
The vineyard is located approximately eight kilometres from Tournon. It comprises five
hectares situated to the southern end of the estate, on south east facing steep
slopes. The vines are planted in clay and limestone soils.


Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested at optimum maturity. They were immediately
pressed, racked and fermented at low temperatures of 16 to 17°C in stainless steel
vats. 30% of the harvest was fermented in new barrels.
