Domaine Courbis Cornas Champelrose 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
