The 2010 St.-Joseph exhibits more tannin and tightness. I am not convinced it will equal the seductiveness of the 2011, but is certainly an excellent, long, rich effort. However, this is not the only estate where I noticed something special about the 2011 St.-Josephs. ||One of the most quality conscious estates in the Northern Rhone, Domaine Courbis produces a trio of vineyard designated Cornas as well as two cuvees of impressive St.-Joseph. After the brilliant success of their 2009 vintage, I thought it would be difficult for this estate to equal what they achieved, but the 2010s are all stunning, and the 2011s are not far behind. The Courbis family has nearly 48 acres in St.-Joseph and another 20 in Cornas, making them a relatively impressive family-owned estate. The Cornas vineyards are planted in decomposed granite soils with little top soil. The Cornas Les Eygats emerges from what the Courbis brothers feel is their greatest micro-climate, from a terraced vineyard composed of broken granite, planted at an altitude of 250 meters.

Locatedin the Northern Rhone, Domaine Courbis is one of the undisputed stars of Cornas. Owners and brothers, Laurent and Dominique Courbis are ardent believers in terroir, with the top cuvees named after their respective vineyards. The uncompromising approach pays huge dividends year after year: the blend of modern-style winemaking and respect for ancient tradition (the estate orginated in the 16th century), together with incredible attention to detail produces dense and powerful wines with 10-15 years of ageing potential.
