Château Grand Corbin Manuel 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose is fruity, very slightly tight and offers a small concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of wild strawberry, small wild berries associated with touches of violet, gray pepper as well as discreet hints of cardamone and discreet toasted hints / Tonka bean. The palate is fruity, mineral, well-balanced and offers freshness, suavity, good structure, a slight tension, a good juiciness as well as a slight acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh / juicy blackberry, acidulous / crushed red currants and cassis associated with small touches of violet, Zan, blond tobacco as well as small hints of toasted oak / tonka bean and spices. Tannins are well-built. Good length.
