The 2018 Cornas La Sabarotte sees the most new oak (100% actually) and comes from a rocky, granitic southeast facing lieu-dit and vines planted mostly in 1947. Despite the new oak élevage, you wouldn't know it by tasting it. It offers a monster bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, roasted meats, ground pepper, and chocolate, with plenty of classic Cornas meatiness and minerality. Powerful, full-bodied, and opulent on the palate, with a stacked mid-palate, it’s certainly the biggest, richest wine in the lineup. It's going to take 7-8 years for this to shed its considerable baby fat.

The 2018 Cornas la Sabarotte is a clear favorite at Courbis this year, as it's packed and stacked with lush purple fruit. Full-bodied, plush and creamy, it boasts solid granite underpinnings and a long, dusty finish that leaves behind a powerful impression of crushed stone. 2022-2035
