Made from century-old vines and younger vines, this fruity, tannic Cornas with peppery notes is the perfect accompaniment to a rack of lamb. More info
This 100% Syrah Cornas comes from a granite terroir with poor and filtering soil. The very old vines (planted in 1919) that this wine is made from are located at the base of the hillside, and cover an area of 2.5 hectares. A plot with vines which are about 15 years old (4.3 hectares) makes up the rest. The yield is around 37 hectolitres per hectare.
After the manual harvests, the grapes are destemmed and vinified in thermoregulated stainless steel vats. Racking and punching down are carried out. Maceration lasts for 3 weeks. The maturation then takes place for 16 months in barrels (25% of which are new). This tannic wine, full of fruitiness and peppery notes, will go perfectly with a rack of lamb.
Domaine Courbis is a family estate that dates back to the 16th century. Today, Dominique and Laurent cultivate 35 hectares of vines planted mostly on steep slopes. They produce some 160,000 cuvées in the Saint-Joseph, Cornas, Crozes-Hermitages and Saint Péray appellations. Maceration takes place in temperature controlled concrete vats and maturation in new oak barrels
