1996 Corbin Michotte, St-Emilion

SKU #1072636

According to Robert Parker: "This wine follows in the style of most Corbin-Michottes, even though the vintage had a tendency to produce tannic, hard wines. However, Corbin-Michotte seems to always aim for ripeness, and a seductive, forward fruity style with no hard edges. The dark ruby-colored 1996 is round and soft, with plenty of herb-tinged berry fruit intermixed with smoke and earth. Ripe and medium-bodied, it is ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years."

This small property is located at the Pomerol border with less than 20 acres and production just over 3000 cases. Again please decant. When it was first opened earth and mushroom dominated the nose but after an hour the ripe plum and mineral, and herbaceous aromas stood out. The palate was soft and lush with plenty of roasted herbs, mushroom, plum and spice flavors. The long lovely finish of herbs and delicate red fruit stole the show.

The most Burgundian like Bordeaux I've ever had! Very feminine and sultry. Black cherry, but lighter bodied and complex with coffee mocha undertones. Pretty and drinkable now!

This is also quite good, with more stuffing and power than the 1994 and the Cabernet Franc showing the way. Decant one hour.
