The 2015 Grand Corbin Despagne is endowed with serious depth and intensity. Scorched earth, smoke, tobacco, chocolate, licorice and dark blue/blackish fruit give the 2015 much of its distinctive virile, brooding personality. The tannins are firm and imposing, but there is also more than enough depth to balance things out. This is a solid, if somewhat rustic, Saint-Émilion. Tasted three times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Château Grand Corbin-Despagne has a precise and floral bouquet, wilted violets infusing the dark cherry and blackberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, plenty of nascent energy with impressive tension on the long finish. This should offer 15-20 years of pleasure and I expect the final bottle sample score to rest at the top of my band, possibly higher. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Lighter-bodied than most of its peers, but fresh and well-focused, with raspberry and currant notes carried by a finish that gains a succulent edge at it opens up. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Dark purplish. Sweet and open but perhaps not that ambitious? Salty and a tad tough. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2032

Consistent as usual; lots of energy and character. Bright, lifted aromatics and suave texture and tannins. Length and drive on the finish. Harmonious and beautifully poised. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035
