2018 Cornas La Sabarotte, 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.
