Château Grand Corbin-Despagne 2019 en Primeur
La 2019 es, nada menos, que la vendimia número 208 que realiza la familia Despagne. Este château situado justo en el límite con el Pomerol es un Grand Cru Classé de la A.O.C. Saint-Émilion. Su boca placentera, rica y cargada de fruta le convierten, para el crítico Jeb Dunnuck, en el mejor vino de la propiedad que ha probado hasta la fecha.
La entrega de este vino está prevista a lo largo de 2022.

Very deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Grand Corbin-Despagne comes hurtling out of the glass with bombastic notes of stewed plums, baked black cherries, blueberry pie and mocha plus touches of cedar chest, menthol, cloves and pencil lead with an emerging waft of licorice. The full-bodied palate really packs a wallop, featuring concentrated, ripe black fruits and a firm frame of grainy tannins, with just enough freshness, finishing long with the wood standing out slightly. It's an ambitious wine that appears to have all the elements of greatness; it will just need a fair bit of time in barrel/bottle for everything to come together.
This is really nicely crafted with a solid core of juicy dark fruit. Hints of cedar and vanilla. Chocolate, too. It’s full-bodied with a long, focused finish. Extremely well crafted.
I loved the 2019 Château Grand Corbin-Despagne, a mouthfilling, pleasure-bent beauty that packs loads of fruit and richness yet still stays balanced, nicely textured, and lengthy. It's going to offer pleasure right out of the gate yet should evolve gracefully as well. It's easily the finest wine I've tasted from this property. Tasted twice.
Barrel Sample. This wine is a great success. It is structured, balanced and full of fine berry fruits. It is built for long-term aging.
Lovely medium intensity purple on the colour, this is concentrated with clear and strong cassis and bilberry flavours and some fresh mint notes as it opens up through the palate - plenty of layers and complexity to unpick over the years to come. The Corbin sector on the clays near to Pomerol did a great job of resisting the periods of drought in 2019. A yield of 36hl/ha. 50% new oak. The 208th vintage of the Despagne family here, 24th for François Despagne. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040.
