Description

Since 1924, Château Corbin has belonged to the same family. Passed down from generation to generation by the female lines, it is today the property of Anabelle Cruse (4th generation) and her husband Sébastien Bardinet. An oenologist by training and owner of the estate since 2007, Anabelle Cruse Bardinet has been managing this vineyard since 1999. Year after year, she works on the constant improvement of the domain and its wines: renewal of the plots, restructuring of the site, and renovating the cellar. The challenges are great, but Anabelle tackles them with rigor, passion, and know-how. The style and precision of her wines are progressing in a spectacular way, making wines without compromise, using her intuition, and kudos: to harvest grapes at optimum maturity producing elegant, fine wines, full of power and delicacy, while preserving the freshness of the fruit and purity of aromas. All choices are made resulting in the production of excellence, with the greatest respect for the terroir.

Smells

an elegant, refined bouquet showing freshness, juiciness, and elegance, with ripe and multi-faceted aromas of dark cherries, red/black liquorice, violets, plums, and mocha notes.

Tastes

The palate shows a ripe, fruit spectrum with a sweetness upfront and on the finish, leaving a lasting impression. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc adding perfume and a salivating acid thread. Flavours of ripe, Doris plums, liquorice, cedar, exotic Asian spice and lifted toasty notes. A stellar vintage from Corbin and one for the cellar for 10-12years+
