Courbis Crozes-Hermitage '16

Winemaking has been the Courbis family's calling since the 16th century.  One can say, at this point, it is their life's mission.  The winery is currently run by brothers Laurent and Dominique, with the same faith and integrity in their wine production as their ancestors before them. The winery puts out a style with an edge in modern winemaking, thanks to the brothers' work in capturing both traditional and progressive elements. 

Courbis' wines resonate in concentration and purity of fruit, extended by length and through balanced ripeness.  We see beautiful composure and effort overall.  The wines emphasis is on place, highlighting the region's respective qualities through the masterful Syrah.

Their Crozes-Hermitage bottling is one of Courbis' best values.  Utilizing exclusively Syrah, the wine captures typical terroir of the region with a similar soil composition one would find in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, however finessed by cooler temperature levels.  Vinifcation is a combination of 65% in tank, the rest seeing 2-year old barrique. Crozes-Hermitage presents Syrah in a fun, lighter garbe, dressed for early consumption.  Expect classic notes of fresh dark fruit, violets and herbs like tobacco.
