A dense Saint-Emilion red wine with character

The Château Grand Corbin Despagne is a Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Emilion nearby to Pomerol whose vineyard covers an area of 28.79 hectares. The grapes are harvested manually and they are sorted successively 5 times. The blend is 75% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.

At tasting, one can see a ruby colour showing a beautiful depth while revealing purple-toned reflections. On the nose, the Château Grand Corbin Despagne 2015 offers fruity aromas, almost like aged jam. On the palate, we can notice a wine of great flexibility and a pleasant velvetiness with notably ripe fruit fragrances. Tannins are present. The refined finish extends into a lengthy, savoury voyage. It is deep wine full of character.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Grand Corbin-Despagne has gorgeous purity of crushed black cherries and blackberries on the nose with hints of fragrant earth, roses and menthol plus a waft of unsmoked cigars. The medium-bodied palate is firm with energetic fruit, a lively backbone and a long, earthy finish.
