2015 Cornas La Sabarotte, Domaine Courbis

Still very much a baby, this is brooding, dark and complex, with notes of black cherry, dark chocolate and hedgerow herbs. The structure is huge and tight, but the potential for a world-beating wine is plain to see.

Tasting notes

The utterly profound 2015 Cornas La Sabarotte comes from a terrific lieu-dit located in the heart of the appellation and is brought up all in new French oak. Its deep purple/blue color is followed by incredible notes of black raspberries, blueberries, spring flowers, caramelized meats and licorice. Deep, full-bodied, utterly seamless and profound on the palate, with building, sweet tannin, it's a tour de force that will have two decades or more of longevity!
