The 2021 Grand Corbin-Despagne shows considerable promise. Mingling notions of sweet wild berries and plums with hints of licorice, petals and loamy soil, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, with lively acids, fine depth at the core and beautifully polished tannins. Tasted eight times, twice at the château. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

The 2021 Grand Corbin Despagne has a high-toned bouquet of macerated small red cherries and a touch of prune. The palate is medium-bodied and quite plush, with smooth tannins, yet it is missing some complexity on the finish. Overall, this just lacks a bit of grace at the moment. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

This is enjoyable, earthy and full of heart, with a tight tannic frame filled with cassis and blackberry fruits, darker in character than many in the vintage. 10% amphora for ageing, 19hl/h, organic farming. Thomas Duclos and Stétphane Totoundji consultants to this estate owned by 7th generation winemaker Francois Despagne who is celebrating 210 years in the family with this vintage. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Expressive fruit on the nose and palate. Suave and velvety on attack, the tannins polished and fine. Nothing jarring and plenty of substance on the mid palate. Drive and freshness on the finish. - Jancis Robinson
