Tasted by Jane Anson at Bordeaux, 15 May 2020
"Lovely medium intensity purple on the colour, this is concentrated with clear and strong cassis and bilberry flavours and some fresh mint notes as it opens up through the palate - plenty of layers and complexity to unpick over the years to come. The Corbin sector on the clays near to Pomerol did a great job of resisting the periods of drought in 2019. A yield of 36hl/ha. 50% new oak. The 208th vintage of the Despagne family here, 24th for François Despagne. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040."
THE WINE ADVOCATE 92-94+
"Very deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Grand Corbin-Despagne comes hurtling out of the glass with bombastic notes of stewed plums, baked black cherries, blueberry pie and mocha plus touches of cedar chest, menthol, cloves and pencil lead with an emerging waft of licorice. The full-bodied palate really packs a wallop, featuring concentrated, ripe black fruits and a firm frame of grainy tannins, with just enough freshness, finishing long with the wood standing out slightly. It's an ambitious wine that appears to have all the elements of greatness; it will just need a fair bit of time in barrel/bottle for everything to come together."
