Corbin 2022


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 94.0

To Château Corbin’s owner François Despagne, he is a firm believer that the true making of wine occurs in the vineyard, not the winery. Located in the North-West of Saint-Émilion, on the Pomerol border, Corbin benefits from two types of soil: one formed of clay that is laced with iron, the other which draws on the richness of Pomerol. In turn, Corbin have created an abundant and complex wine that thrives due to its unique terroir. Comprising a rich blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it has earned the accolade of Grand Cru Classé. The result is an elegant wine that is both dominant yet delicate and retains both a freshness and abundant fruitiness that is formed from the utmost respect for the landscape that has cultivated it.



William Kelley

The 2022 Corbin has turned out beautifully, bursting with aromas of cherries and raspberries mingled with hints of violets, vine smoke and bay leaf. Medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, its bright, perfumed and polished, but with a touch more mid-palate density and texture than is habitual for this elegant-styled wine. Its a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, and such was the quality of all the lots that no second wine was produced this year.

Georgina Hindle

Supple and so juicy and easy to like, clean and pure, lovely appealing red berry fruit and great tannin integration, so effortless, maybe lacks some more density, but this is so appealing and already so approachable. will be lovely, amore delicate take, refined and elegant, lovely purity and prettiness. HVE3 certified.
