About Domaine Courbis
The Domaine Courbis is located in Châteaubourg, in the extreme south of Saint-Joseph. Managed by Dominique Courbis, it has superb hillside plots. An estate renowned in the Rhône : an original parcel work, a passion, subtle wines.
The geology around Châteaubourg is complex. Granite dominates and indeed the eponymous château stands on a granite spur overlooking the Rhône and much of the steep escarpment is also granitic with shallow sandy soils, perfect for growing syrah. The top of the vineyard, called Royes, is quite different because there is limestone, good for the reds but very good for the whites as well. South of Chateaubourg, the vines give way to forest for a kilometre or two before the village of Cornas where suddenly the escarpment opens out to create an amphitheatre-shaped bowl behind the village, the ideal setting for one of the greatest wines of the Rhône.
