Domaine Courbis St Joseph Les Royes 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, St-Joseph|
Wine AdvocateAging in approximately 30% new oak, the 2016 Saint Joseph Les Royes comes from a limestone-based terroir. It's plummy and supple, with cedar and vanilla highlights. It should drink well immediately after bottling in March 2018 and provide ample enjoyment for 6-7 more years after that.
Wine SpectatorDelightfully ripe, featuring a good fleshy feel to the mix of plum and boysenberry fruit flavors, with additional violet, licorice and toast accents throughout. Drink now through 2023.
