Winemaker's Notes

Each vintage is unique. However, a family resemblance cannot be denied: complex aromas of red fruit developing, as the wine ages, towards spicier touches and hints of truffle, which become more intense on the palate, due to the delicacy and unctuousness of their smooth tannins.

When young, the wines of Grand Corbin-Despagne are a perfect match with red meat and game. As they age, they are marvellous served with white meats and poultry.

Critical Acclaim

"Packed with sweet fruit, but also structured to balance. The wine shows a satisfying mix of acidity and sweet chocolate flavors.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points"
93 Points

"Aromas of blueberries and dried flowers, with hints of fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a racy, silky textured finish. Very fine. Exceptional from here. Try in 2016."
93 Points

"This is rock-solid, with cocoa, fig and blackberry notes rolled together, framed by dense but polished structure and all weaving nicely through the lightly grippy finish. Best from 2013 through 2022. "
