Grand Corbin Despagne

Château Grand Corbin Despagne is a Grand Cru Classé property located in the north of Saint-Émilion, adjacent to Pomerol. Located not far from Cheval Blanc, the estate was one of Cheval Blanc’s tenant farmers in the early 19th Century. Gaining independence after the French Revolution, the Despagne family established Château Grand Corbin Despagne in 1812 and the tie remains unbroken until this day. A boutique family estate with a long history, the size of the property accounts for 26 ha only. Grand Corbin Despagne is now under the watchful eye of François Despagne, the 7th generation of the family.

Grand Corbin Despagne 2009 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (87+)

This is one of the few 2009s that performed less impressively from bottle than from barrel. (In most cases, as great as they were from barrel, the wines were even more profound from bottle.) This wine seems to be very much in the style of a 2005, with very high levels of worrisome tannin, a dense purple color and some real meat and concentration, but the tannins are austere and astringent. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025?

Grand Corbin Despagne 2011 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (89)

This wine typically reveals a masculine, dense, rich, concentrated style, and while the 2011 vintage has tamed those characteristics somewhat, this is still a beefy, meaty effort. The color is nearly opaque, and the wine reveals excellent purity and depth as well as an attractive core of deep fruit. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. It is a sleeper of the vintage.

Grand Corbin Despagne 2014 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

The 2014 Grand-Corbin-Despagne was impressive from barrel and that continues to be the case now that this Saint Emilion is in bottle. The bouquet is quite sensual with layers of ripe redcurrant and raspberry fruit, well-integrated oak and just a hint of black truffle and smoke emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, harmonious and focused with bright black cherries and raspberry coulis on the vibrant and persistent finish. Bravo—this is an excellent Grand-Corbin Despagne (but I told you that back in April 2015).

Grand Corbin Despagne 2018 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93-95)

A blend of 75% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Grand Corbin-Despagne is deep garnet-purple colored and features baked black cherries, mulberries and plum preserves with touches of rose hips, Marmite toast and fallen leaves. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, the voluptuous fruit is well framed by firm, rounded tannins and great freshness, finishing long.
