The Cornas Champelrose comes from various vineyard parcels across the Courbis domaine. The soils are a combination of limestone and granite. The various parcels are blended to attain a wine that is ready for near term drinking upon release. It is aged entirely in casks that are usually 10% new, 50% one year, and 20% each 2-3 years of age. The barrel-aging period is 12 months, after which the wine is assembled in tank and aged for a few more months before bottling. It has generous fruit and shows the full character of its appellation in the attractive Courbis house style.

Wine SpectatorBig and rich, but with a throwback feel to the gutsy bramble, tobacco and mulled plum flavors, all pushed by additional dark olive and roasted fig notes. Good cut on the finish offsets the richness nicely. Best from 2012 through 2019.
