Château Corbin 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Grand Cru classé

The nose is aromatic, elegant, frank and offers a good precision as well as a good purity of the fruit. It reveals notes of blackberries, crushed cassis and small notes of crushed raspberry, crushed red berries, vanilla associated with slight touches of violet, blueberry, liquorice and very discreet toasted hints, lilacs, sweet spices and cardamom. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a silky texture, gourmandise, a mineral frame, a fine acidulous sensation as well as a beautiful grain and a beautiful precision / purity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, ripe / crushed wild raspberry and small notes of crushed cassis associated with fine touches of strawberry, blueberry, violet, sweet spices and an imperceptible hint of zan. Tannins are fine, elegant and very slightly grainy. Good length. A beautiful grain on the finish. A beautiful wine!
