Description

This is a dense wine with big tannins and spice from the new wood, melded with rich black fruits and acidity. It is a step up for this property, showing the potential of its fine terroir. WE92–94.

This is firm and linear, showing a solid core of fruit and a rich palate with a bit of alcohol showing. It’s full-bodied with lots of fruit and intensity. Creamy, ripe tannins. Slightly hot finish, but stays together. Try after 2024. - JS92

A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Corbin has been aged for approximately 18 months in oak barrels, 50% new. It has 15% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple in color, it bursts from the glass with bold notions of blueberry coulis, baked black plums and blackberry pie, plus suggestions of incense, ground cloves, violets and camphor. The rich, full-bodied palate is ready for business, featuring bags of black fruit preserves and a velvety texture, finishing with plenty of freshness and a spicy kick. Drink:2022~2036 - WA92

The Winery

Château Corbin is one of the oldest estates in Saint-Emilion. The fundations of the Château date back to the 15th century, and according to legend, Corbin was the focal point of a stronghold that belonged to the Black Prince.

Built in the middle of the 19th century, Corbin was purchased in 1924 by the great-grandparents of the current owners.

Since 1999, the estate is managed by Anabelle Cruse-Bardinet, a Bordeaux University oenology graduate, who represents the 4th generation of the family.

The nose here is rich and pure and dark, a touch smoky and there's that hint of bacon fat again. Fruit is celestial plums and cherries. There's a touch of creaminess about the palate that makes one think "old vines"....
