Château Grand Corbin Despagne 2016

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

 

93/100 Parker

Cellaring: 2020 - 2032

By Lisa Perrotti-Brown in 2018: "Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Grand Corbin-Despagne tilts into exuberant notions of wild blueberries, Black Forest cake, and plum jam with hints of lavender, underbrush, and clove. Full-bodied with great concentration, the palate delivers bags of fragrant fruit layers and finishes with excellent persistence."
