"Along the same lines, the inky purple colored 2011 Cornas Les Eygats is gorgeous on all accounts. Smoke, saddle leather, liquid flowers, pepper and cured meats, as well as the blue-tinged cassis and blackberry-styled fruit that’s common in most young Cornas, are all present here, and it too has medium to full-bodied richness, a great mid-palate and good acidity. Give it another year or so and enjoy it through 2026.

This was a stacked lineup from this top-notch estate, and I was able to taste through the lineup multiple times, once while visiting the domaine, and again in a larger lineup of wines from each appellation. They never failed to impress. Located in the tiny town of Chateaubourg and covering roughly 50 acres in Saint-Joseph and 20 in Cornas, most of which are ideally situated, Courbis is now run by Laurent and Dominique Courbis, with Laurent running the cellar and Dominique managing the vineyards. Despite the high quality, these wines remain reasonably priced, and also see good distribution in the US. It’s an estate that needs to be on every Northern Rhone lover’s short list."

Fra Wine Spectator
"Shows a taut, sinewy feel, with red currant paste, blackberry coulis and pomegranate fruit flavors allied to briar and iron notes. This is lengthy, staying sinewy and defined through the finish." Score 93

Domaine Courbis

Domænet kan spores tilbage til det 16. århundrede og i 1990 overtog brødrene Laurent og Dominique huset. Forretningsgangene blev herefter lagt om og en ny ønolog blev ansat, fadene blev udskiftet og udbyttet sænket. Kvaliteten steg markant og resultatet er, at de fleste er enige om, at Domaine Courbis er den førende Cornas producent. Domaine Courbis har 26 ha vinmarker, fordelt på fem ha i Cornas, 5 ha i Saint-Joseph (hvid), 15 ha i Saint-Joseph (rød) og 1 ha Vin
de Pays de l’Ardeche. Domaine Courbis laver kvalitetsvine uden tilsætning, hverken syre eller alt mulig andet gøjl. Hvis der havde stået Hermitage på etiketten, ville vinene ikke være til at komme til for penge. Som kendetegn er vinene blæksorte med masser af fyldig karakter og læssevis af moden sund frugt.
