    January 2, 2023 - This is lovely, elegant and charming, beautifully fragrant, maturing with some development mixes through the fruit. Light footed and understated, if only all cabs were like this and if only I had more bottles !

    April 9, 2022 - Still some life left, dark fruit, a hint of tobacco and cassis.

  • gouldcampbell77 Likes this wine: 96 points

    December 25, 2020 - With Christmas lunch 2020 - rib of roast English beef

    Beautiful dark ruby purple with a hint of brick. Crystal clear. The nose is stunning - plums, tea, hedgerow fruit, blackberry leaves. Beautiful balance, powerful but precise. So typical of Corison. Full, clean, balanced and simply bursting with life. My wine of the year, without a doubt and what a pairing with pink roast beef.

    Absolutely no regrets about drinking this, my last bottle. This is why I'm in to wine. Breathtakingly beautiful and my highest ever score.

    November 22, 2018 - Lithe and elegant, really needed a good decant and time in the glass to open up, just at the start of its drinking life for me

    October 14, 2018 - Far superior to previous bottles. Really lovely and expressive nose...cassis and cigar box, spices a touch of dust, soft fruit and with some lingering tannin on the finish.
