Domaine Courbis Champelrose Cornas

$64.83

In the words of the winemaker – “This cuvée comes from various vineyard parcels across the Courbis domaine, mostly from vines near the base of Cornas slope. They are blended to produce a wine ready for near term drinking upon release. The soils are a combination of only limestone and granite. The Cornas Champelrose benefits from 3 weeks of vatting to extract as much color and flavor as possible. It is aged entirely in casks that are a mix of 25% new; 20% one year; and 55% 2-3 years of age. The barrel-aging period is 12 months, after which the wine is assembled in tank and aged for four more months before bottling. The wine has generous, accessible, pure fruit and shows the full character of its appellation in the attractive Courbis house style.”

“The entry-level Cornas from Courbis, the 2016 Cornas Champelrose sees no new oak. It offers briary aromas of red raspberries, a velvety, open-knit texture and a long finish tinged with orange zest and clove. Drink this medium to full-bodied wine from its release in early 2018 through 2025.” – 94 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
