    September 29, 2020 - What a great wine! Previous review described this as a "right bank Ducru" and I completely agree! Rich, dark fruited but clean on the palate and not a sloppy mess. The character of beautifully ripe 80% merlot and 20% cab franc expresses itself beautifully. This is wonderfully approachable and enjoyable now and will only improve over the coming years. Bravo!

    August 6, 2020 - Best Chateau Corbin ever. Annabelle has been making great wines for nearly 20 years but she has now brought her property to a new level. 2016 was the first vintage with new cellars, allowing vinification parcel by parcel. This is really more a Pomerol than a St. Emilion. It is quintessential Merlot, but not over the top Parkerized yuckiness like the rest of what we see in the neighborhood. This is 14% alcohol but completely masked, balanced, like a right bank Ducru. Subtle oak. Splendid, splendid rich deep purple color. A beautiful, classy, balanced, traditional right banker. As good a value as you'll find in Bordeaux. Drink now and for the next 20 years. 94+ points.

    November 4, 2019 - Deep color; deeper than the '15.
    Nose > Rich, ripe red cherry. Nice freshness. Again, very Merlot, but redder, tighter fruit than the '15.
    Palate > Ripe, lean, rich red fruit. Lively. Both ripe & linear. Excellent freshness & balance. Rich, firm tannins. Medium intensity.
    14% ABV
    48 hl/hc (3 tons/acre)
    83% Merlot, 17% Cab Franc

    September 21, 2019 - Medium-bodied, elegant and refined, with lovely, fresh, sweet, red fruits, silky tannins and floral aromatics, the wine is bright, refined and finesse driven. There is purity in the fruit, length and energy here.

    June 10, 2017 - I usually love this estate but the tannins come across as just a bit hard. It is very good, sure, but why not spend your money on the already in bottle 2014, which conveys greater freshness and just as much succulence. 89-91
