WA93: Whether I landed on an off bottle or simply misunderstood the wine when I tasted it a few months ago is unclear, but what is certain is that I misjudged the 2019 Corbin. Offering up inviting aromas of plums, raspberries, violets, vine smoke and raw cocoa, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with velvety tannins, succulent acids and an elegant, complete profile. This beautiful wine includes some 15% Cabernet Franc.
VM93: The 2019 Corbin has come together beautifully with élevage. Succulent black cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather and licorice all flesh out, giving this succulent Saint-Émilion tons of energy and sheer appeal. Attractive floral and savory accents linger on the close.
