    From a 13-hectare vineyard on the border of Pomerol (it’s next to Ripeau), the 2018 Château Corbin is a Merlot-dominated blend that includes 10% Cabernet Franc and will spend 18 months in 50% new French oak. It has its foot firmly on the pedal and offers full-bore notes of kirsch, blackberries, spiced plums, graphite, and incense. Almost over the top, it nevertheless holds it together and is full-bodied, has beautiful purity, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It’s a hedonistic blockbuster. Tasted twice. - Jeb Dunnuck

    Annabelle Corbin made no wine in 2017 because of frost so it's great to see her back, and this is easily one of the most delicious Corbins that I've tasted. It has just a little more swirl and silkiness than usual, full of black fruits with increased density, without sacrificing the elegance and freshness that I love from this property. 45hl/ha yield in 2018. 60% new oak, up from 50% in 2016. This is the first year with consultant Jean Luc Thunevin. - Jane Anson, Decanter

    This is a very pretty Corbin with a beautiful core of dark fruit, as well as hazelnuts and dark chocolate. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. - James Suckling

    This 13-hectare vineyard is situated northwest of the town of Saint-Émilion. The vines are an average of 30 years old and are planted to a mix of sand and clay-based soils. The wines are being aged for approximately 18 months in oak barrels, 50% new. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, and it has 15% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Corbin opens with seductive notions of warm plums, Christmas cake and blueberry compote with fragrant earth, yeast extract and cedary undertones. Full, rich and spicy in mouth, it has a solid backbone of ripe, plush tannins and a long, earthy finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
