Domaine Courbis

2020 Saint Joesph, Domaine Courbis

Rhône Valley, FranceVintage: 2020

This 2020 St Joesph shows the full character of its appellation in the attractive Courbis house style. In the glass, it is a refined wine with aromatic notes of ripe red fruits and blackcurrant characters that lead to a harmoniously balanced and fleshy palate. Hints of violet enhance the intense fruit flavours, which are supported by fine, silky tannins.  This cuvée comes from various vineyard parcels across the Courbis domaine, blended to produce a wine ready for near term drinking upon release.

Saint Joseph is situated at the confluence of the Rhône and Isère rivers on the right bank of the Rhône. Domaine Courbis owns the most southern parcels of the Saint Joseph appellation, on very steep and terraced slopes, with a southern and eastern orientation. The soils comprise 30% clay and limestone, and 70% decomposed granite, which retains the heat from the day and promotes a long slow ripening period for the grapes.

Domaine Courbis dates from the 16th century and has been handed down from father to son since the start of the 20th century. It is now under the dynamic partnership of two brothers: Laurent, who is responsible for winemaking, and Dominique who looks after the vineyard. The vineyard currently extends to 35 hectares (including eight hectares in Cornas, five hectares in Saint Joseph Blanc and 19 hectares in Saint Joseph Rouge) in the communes of Châteaubourg and Cornas. The vines are planted on steep hillsides and the cellar is modern and equipped with temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and oak casks. The polished wines of Domaine Courbis are of extremely high quality and are consistently met with worldwide acclaim.

The grapes were hand harvested in small boxes, 100% destemmed and lightly pressed. Vinification took place in new vats at controlled temperatures of between 30 to 32°C. Maceration lasted between 12 to 15 days to achieve the maximum colour extraction. The wine was then matured for 10 months; of which 20% was oak of one year; 60% oak of third or fourth passage with the remaining 20% aged in stainless steel. The wine underwent regular racking prior to being bottled.
