Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: Lighter-bodied than most of its peers, but fresh and well-focused, with raspberry and currant notes carried by a finish that gains a succulent edge at it opens up. 88 - 91 Points
Ratings
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Château Grand Corbin-Despagne has a precise and floral bouquet, wilted violets infusing the dark cherry and blackberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, plenty of nascent energy with impressive tension on the long finish. This should offer 15-20 years of pleasure and I expect the final bottle sample score to rest at the top of my band, possibly higher. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 90 - 92 Points
Awards
Jancis Robinson: Dark purplish. Sweet and open but perhaps not that ambitious? Salty and a tad tough. Drink 2023-2032 16 Points
Other Notes
Superb Classified known to fans for his consistency, Grand Corbin Despagne is for the passionate François Despagne and his family for 200 years, the latter being located in Saint-Emilion for over half a millennium. The vineyard of 29 hectares is cultivated organically since 2004 certified since 2013. The vintage 47 parcels of vines are carefully vinified independently to express the best. The grape varieties of 75% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. Classic style, never demonstrative, Grand Corbin Despagne Wine offers finely peppered notes from its iron deposits of soil on the edge of the Pomerol appellation. Sleek and elegant, with tight tannins and bright fruit, it boasts a beautiful aging capacity. Sleek and elegant, with tight tannins and bright fruit, it boasts a beautiful aging capacity.
