COURBIS ST. JOSEPH LES ROYES 2015
Offered JUL 24th, 2017
The origins of the Courbis family estate date back to the 16th century. In the early 1990s, brothers Dominique and Laurent Courbis succeeded to their father, Maurice. They have since firmly established themselves as leaders of the modern school of winemaking in St Joseph and Cornas. The Courbis style produces wines with intense aromas and concentrated fruit, with great purity and length. The terraced, cliff-like St-Joseph Les Royes vineyard is a spectacular “cirque” or extremely steep amphitheater. It is located at the southern limit of the St. Joseph appellation, on the border of Cornas.

(93-95+) points Wine Advocate: “The inky black/blue-colored 2015 Saint Joseph les Royes from the Courbis team was brought up in one-third each of new, once and twice-used barrels. It offers sensational notes of crème de cassis toasted bread, licorice and pen ink in a massive, rich, concentrated, layered style that is shocking in its depth and richness. It’s a crazy good St Joseph.”
