    The Cornas La Sabarotte 2011 from Domaine Courbis displays an almost black garnet-tinted red colour. It is strong and seductive on the nose, market by ripped dark berry on a grilled backbone with more vanilla and smoky notes. On the palate, the 2011 La Sabarotte offers a good complexity with strong and broad tannins, as well as blackcurrant, pepper and liquorice flavours. The finish is sweet and spicy. 

     

    Parker : 94 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Seeing the most new oak of the lineup and spending upwards of 18 months in 100% new French oak, the 2011 Cornas La Sabarotte is also the richest, most decadent, and concentrated of the three single vineyards. Exhibiting terrific aromas and flavors of black raspberry, licorice, roasted meats, barbecue and forest floor, this full-bodied 2011 has a blockbuster texture, no hard edges and ample underlying structure that's partially concealed by all of the fruit. It will have an easy 12-15 years of longevity and should not be missed!
