The 2014 Les Eygats Cornas made from Syrah offers a deep purplish-blue-tinted red color. This Domaine Courbis 2014 vintage expresses perfect and fine red fruit notes - cherry and Morello cherry. This wine is full of complexity thanks to fine wooden aromas from the maturation in oak barrels. To the palate, the 2014 Les Eygats is round and fleshy. It holds macerated black and Morello cherry, smooth spices and rare wood flavors. The promising tannins are strong and delicate. The well-balanced style gives freshness, vivacity and character to the finish.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Cornas les Eygats is similarly concentrated to the Sabrotte, but offers more pepper, iron, sweet black cherry and strawberry fruit. This medium-bodied, supple, pure and beautifully polished effort is another 2014 that can be enjoyed today, but will keep for a decade. These 2014s show the more mid-weight, focused style of the vintage, yet have beautiful character and are already approachable. Drink these while you wait on the 2015s.
