Domaine Courbis Cornas La Sabarotte, 2012

Rhone, France

Notes:

Inky purple black colour. Nice smoky meatiness to the nose, which is rich and spicy. The palate is rich and full, displaying chunky, spicy, tannic fruit. Quite a big wine.



"Takes a ripe, modern approach at first, with roasted fig, cruched plum and raspberry notes leading the way, but also lots of roasted earth, and tobacco notes tugging from underneath to keep this honest. A piercing chalky streak emerges on the finish, providing added length and range. Very impressive." Wine Spectator

Details

Domaine Courbis

The wines of the Courbis estate are some of the most compelling examples of Saint Joseph and Cornas being made today. The Courbis brothers have combined their long family experience with a modern style and this has earned them international recognition. Robert Parker sums it up in his book on Rhone wines: "Courbis is a name to watch in the Northern Rhone". Courbis wines regularly receive rave reviews in Wine Spectator, International Wine Cellar, The Wine Advocate and Revue du Vin de France.

Regional Info

Rhone

The mighty Rhone River that cuts through the French countryside and lends it name to this auspicious wine region is the uniting force of the great tracts of farmland and vineyards either side of it. Some of the oldest vineyards in France decorate the valley, and the Rhone wine region produces quality wines that can compete with some of the finest Bordeaux and Burgundy wines on the market. It was not always this way however, and as the world catches up to the true richness available in Rhone wines, there are some excellent value wines to be found.
