2013 Cornas Les Eygats, Domaine Courbis

Evidently, Laurent uses only the best barrels for ageing his wines, and this attention really shows in his top cuvée. Very cool, pure fruit expression from the east-facing, high altitude vineyard of Eygats, with such serious intensity and texture, this is certainly a vintage that will certainly warrant some ageing.

2013 Cornas Les Eygats, Domaine Courbis
Domaine Courbis

Winemaking has been the Courbis family vocation since 1587. Today, his sons Laurent (the vinifier) and Dominique (who runs the vineyard) make wines in five appellations, including in St.-Joseph for more than 400 years and in Cornas since 1982. The modern, polished style of Domaine Courbis belies the historic roots of the family, and it has long been considered one of the top concerns in the Northern Rhône. This domaine is the perfect example of modern vinification meeting classic viticulture.
