    August 11, 2021 - FWDC Tasting: Stunning nose of toffee, smooth and elegant.

  • vvWine.ch wrote: 93 points

    May 22, 2021 - 93 vvPunkte (83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc) Kräftige, intensive Nase, viel dunkle Frucht, Lakritze, Brombeermarmelade. Im Gaumen sehr vollmundig, ein Mund voll Wein, die Frucht wirkt reif jedoch nicht verkocht, das ist kein Vergleich mit dem en Primeur verkosteten Muster, reichhaltig, wuchtig satt und mit superfeinen Tanninen, die sich erst ganz hinten bemerkbar. Im Abgang langanhaltend, sehr balanciert. 2024-2040+ (April 2021)

    March 9, 2021 - Elegant, refined, silky and fresh with beautiful purity and symmetry to the fruit. The sweetness in the red pit fruits on the nose, palate and in the finish make a great, lasting impression. The wine blends 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc. As I said in my barrel tastings, this is the finest vintage of Corbin produced yet!

    May 10, 2019 - Bordeaux 2018 from barrel: some selections (Bordeaux): Has glycerin to be sure. A sweet nose, but with mint, too. The palate is rich and flavorful, with some heady aspects. Overall a rather sumptuous expression, à la 2015. Nice job, but I am not surprised as this estate is quite consistent indeed for good quality. 92-94

    April 19, 2019 - With a profundity of color, the wine is fresh, juicy, elegant, ripe and multi-faceted. On the palate and in the finish you find decadent cherries and licorice with lift, length and opulence. The wine blends 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc, reaching 15% alcohol but there is no touch of heat or jammy sensations. This is a beauty and it is the best vintage of Corbin I have ever tasted! 92-94 Pts
