Courbis Cornas "Les Eygats" '16

Rhône Valley

Courbis Cornas "Les Eygats" '16

Also composed of 100% Syrah, grown in granite, the "Les Egats" cuvée is highly limited, producing 5,000 bottles annually.  What sets this wine apart includes high elevation, 250 meters up in Cornas' steep slopes, planted with vines that are 25 years old with an east-facing edge.  With less sun exposure facing the east, this wine procures elegance that brightens up Cornas' typically dense, rich style.  This sees extensive aging in 50% new oak, aged for 18 months.  This wine is clean and pure yet playful on the nose with an acidic edge that allows all of its components to resonate on your palate; ripe black cherries, leather, violets, chalky tannins and toasty hints.
