2019 Cornas 'Les Eygats', Laurent Courbis
Available En Primeur
"Ripe black/blue fruits, licorice, vanilla and an exotic spice quality on the mineral-inflected nose. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet, penetrating cassis, bitter cherry, blueberry and licorice flavors that deepen and turn sweeter through the midpalate. Youthfully gripping tannins frame a strikingly long, chewy finish that emphatically repeats the blue fruit and floral notes."
94-96 pts, Josh Raynolds, www.vinous.com
Châteaubourg, where Laurent has most of his vines, and where he officiates as mayor since 2002, is a prime syrah production site, with its granite terraces that suit this grape variety so well. Laurent produces some of the top Cornas in the region, extracted wines of plush textures yet precise with minerailty and expressive aromatics.
