2005 Corbin, St-Emilion

SKU #1243540 93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2005 Château Corbin is still a young wine that is a bit bound up by its fine structural elements today, but with a handful of more years in the cellar, this is going to be an outstanding bottle. The bouquet offers up a youthful mix of black cherries, cassis, a touch of lavender, cigar smoke, dark soil tones, a bit of fresh herb tones and spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, young and tangy, with a rock solid core, fine soil signature, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, vibrant and still quite primary finish. Like all the 2005s, this still needs time in the cellar, but it is going to be outstanding. 93+ Inner quote mark (1/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark purple in color, showing very powerful aromas of crushed blackberry and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky, extracted tannins and lots of extraction overall, but there's still so much going on. This is big and juicy. Inner quote mark (3/2008)
