He describes it as a focused and precise wine with "beautiful cassis and black cherry fruits" complemented by "notes of iron, ground pepper, violets, and incense." Dunnuck further praises its rich, concentrated, and powerful palate, noting its "notable acidity, fine, firmer tannins, beautiful purity, and a great finish." He advises that it should be cellared for 4-5 years to reach its full potential, predicting a longevity of 15-20 years.

Vinous also rated this wine highly, with a score range of 95-97 points. Reviewer Josh Raynolds highlights its "vibrant, expansive aromas of spice-accented dark berries, minerals and candied flowers" that evolve to include "olive, vanilla and smoky bacon" with aeration. On the palate, Raynolds describes the wine as "sappy and energetic," offering "intense blackberry, bitter cherry, licorice, black pepper and mocha flavors" that become sweeter over time. The finish is noted to be "spicy, youthfully tannic and impressively long," leaving behind resonant floral and spice notes.

Overall, the 2020 Courbis Cornas Les Eygats Syrah is a well-structured and powerful wine, praised for its complexity and potential for aging. Both reviewers emphasize its rich fruit flavors, firm tannins, and long finish, making it a standout selection from the Cornas appellation.
