Lastly, the inky colored (it's even deeper than the Sabarotte) 2015 Cornas Les Eygats comes from a cooler terroir located in the northern part of the appellation. Raised in equal parts new and used barrels, it offers an utterly profound bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, scorched earth, pepper and liquid flowers. Possessing sensational purity of fruit, integrated acidity, sweet tannin and perfect balance, it's another remarkably elegant yet powerful, heavenly Syrah from this estate that readers shouldn't miss. It's up with the finest Cornas ever made. Bravo! The Courbis brothers have hit a home run with these 2015s, the finest wines I’ve tasted from this brilliant estate. All three of the single vineyard Cornas are incredible wines, with the Les Eygats being one of finest Cornas ever made.
Deep ruby. Assertive black and blue fruit, licorice pastille, bacon and violet aromas are complemented by a smoky mineral accent. Seamless and broad on the palate, offering alluringly sweet boysenberry, cola and floral pastille flavors and a suave touch of exotic spices. Finishes with repeating mineral and dark fruit character, delivering smooth, well-knit tannins and impressive tenacity. (JR)
Ripe and well-built, with a core of raspberry, blackberry and plum pâte de fruit flavors still coiled up, while graphite, anise and tar notes hold sway for now. Has excellent drive and energy, and will be a winner when the elements meld fully. (JM, Web Only-2018)
Loads of floral character and rich, succulent blackberry fruit. Fresh, perfumed, much more satisfying and complete than their Champelrose. Incredibly lengthy. Absolutely wonderful and broad – stretches across the back palate. Superb. 17.5/20 points (RH)
