2015 Cornas Les Eygats, Domaine Courbis

It’s the fruit purity that really impresses on this smart wine from Courbis. There’s a huge tannic structure behind that juicy fruit however, which combined with the soaring freshness creates a wine that will last for years and years.

Due to tiny quantities and high demand this wine is limited to 12 bottles per customer.

TASTING NOTES

Even inkier-colored than the Sabarotte, the 2015 Cornas les Eygats is another single vineyard release that comes from a site located on the northern edge of the appellation. Aged in 50% new French oak (the balance is in once-used barrels), it offers sensational notes of plums, blueberries, crushed violets, pen ink and barbecue smoke in an utterly profound, decadent, layered, heavenly profile. There's ample tannin here, but they're sweet and polished, and it has an awesome finish. Don't miss it!
