The 2022 Grand Corbin Despagne is stellar. A large-scaled, dramatic wine, the 2022 possesses notable depth and tons of dimension. Inky dark fruit, lavender, licorice, violets and cloves build in a dramatic SaintÉmilion that marries opulence and structure. Clean mineral and savory accents extend the finish. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Blackberry and violet-edging in colour, chewy tannic structure, this flirts with the far edge of extraction but gets it right, with intense dark chocolate and liqourice root, tannins that close in behind the cassis fruits, but just as the palate begins to contrict, it expands to let juice in behind. François Despagne owner at this excellent quality 28.5ha estate. 50% new barrels. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Focused and precise with black berry and salty undertones. It’s medium-bodied with juicy and fresh fruit at the end. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. - James Suckling

Unfurling in the glass with aromas of cherries, sweet berries and plums mingled with hints of spices and licorice, the 2022 Grand Corbin-Despagne is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with excellent concentration, supple tannins and a bright, lively core of fruit. It's a terrific effort from this under-the-radar estate. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Supple and lively, so bright, so energetic and clean, a lovely instant purity to this, juice and alive with well integrated supportive tannins. Maybe missing a touch more density, but the tannins still have some chewy, velvety grip a long length. Feels finessed and well worked, pure, charming, so easy to drink with lovely elegance. Red fruit, high acidity, lots of life and some salty, stony touches on the finish. Joyful and lifted, a lovely expression and so approachable. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2022 Château Grand Corbin-Despagne is a pretty, floral, bright and lively 2022 that has plenty of structure on the palate. Black cherries, blueberries, and spring flowers all define the aromatics, and it has a bright, almost racy spine of acidity, quality tannins, and a great finish. It does well in the vintage and shines for its vibrancy and freshness. - Jeb Dunnuck

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Grand Corbin-Despagne is a tad closed to start, opening out, with coaxing, to notes of prunes, blueberry preserves, and tar with hints of fertile loam, sauteed herbs, and cedar. The medium to full-bodied palate has impressive acidity and firm, grainy tannins supporting the muscular fruit, finishing earthy. -  Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent
