Chateau Grand Corbin Despagne Saint Emilion 2016

Size Pack
750 ml
Case of 12


The 2016 Grand-Corbin-Despagne was one of the few Saint Emilion Grand Crus that I felt showed a little too much fruit on the nose, felt a little blowsy. The palate is sweet and generous, fleshy and smooth with firm grip, although it does not deliver the complexity and nuance of its peers on the finish. Not a bad Saint Emilion at all, but this is 2016. Let's see if it improves in bottle and matches the fine 2014 and 2015s from this property. -Neal Martin, Apr 2017

Very polished in feel, with layers of blueberry and raspberry puree gliding along, inlaid with sweet spice, black tea and melted black licorice. Almost too easy, but the fruit is hard resist. -James Molesworth, Web 2017

Powerful tannins and ripe fruits are the main characters here. With a solid, foursquare character, it is generous and opulent. Tannins and concentration are all there, resulting in a wine with serious aging potential. -Roger Voss, Web 2017

Iron, smoke, game, tobacco, black cherry and a host of more soil-driven tones give the 2016 Grand Corbin Despagne its virile, brooding personality. Far from an easygoing Saint-Émilion, the 2016 is a burly, powerful wine that needs time in bottle to be at its best. This is a terrific wine in the making. -Antonio Galloni, Apr 2017
