2009 Corbin, St-Emilion
Beautiful fruit of crushed raspberries and cherries, with hints of minerals. Full body, with firm tannins and a chewy finish. Give it two or three years to come together in the bottle.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Showing far superior from bottle than it did from cask, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is one of the more gloriously fruity, sumptuously textured wines of St.-Emilion. A pure, hedonistic fruit bomb with terrific texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel and impressive purity and depth, this is a wine worth lining up for to fill up your trunk, since it is usually one of the best values in grand cru classes from St.-Emilion. Drink it over the next 15 or more years. (RP)
This focused red is restrained in flavor, but shows excellent balance and concentration. Plum, mineral and toast notes mingle harmoniously over refined tannins, giving way to a floral, spicy finish. Drink now through 2022.
