Les Royes is a steeply sloping, 6-hectare, south-facing amphitheatre of vines, where Courbis cultivates parcels of Syrah (5 hectares) and Marsanne (1 hectare) for their red and white cuvées of this wine. This white Saint-Joseph Blanc is a triumph in 2020, its medium body, lively lemon-peach aromatics and intense freshness being beautifully in balance. It fermented and aged in 30% new French oak barrels, which has brought complexity and attractive spice to the flavour profile as well as a supple texture. We recommend drinking this as soon as it is shipped, as one might a youthful Pouilly-Fuissé (for drinking 2022-2024).
