2015 Cornas Champelrose, Domaine Courbis

Intense and dark, the nose on this gorgeous Syrah immediately strikes you with notes of plum, of dark cherry and violets. The palate is silky, with ripe tannins that build giving the wine volume and a plush mouthfeel.

TASTING NOTES

Sexy, rounded and voluptuous, the roughly 1,500-case 2015 Cornas Champelrose is the entry-level cuvée that’s all destemmed and aged in 25% new barrels. It's easily the most approachable in this lineup and has gorgeous notes of cured meats, toasted spice, black raspberries, black cherries and licorice. Full-bodied, layered and rounded, it should drink beautifully on release, but evolve gracefully.
