CHÂTEAU GRAND CORBIN DESPAGNE
2000 Grand Cru Saint Emilion
|Grapes||Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Merlot|
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
This has been a property to watch since the late nineties. All of the recent vintages have represented a relatively virile, muscular, tannic style of St.-Emilion. The black/purple-colored 2000 is a sleeper of the vintage. Revealing aromas of plum, wood smoke, iron, blackberries, licorice, underbrush, and cassis, this full-bodied, layered, powerful, muscular St.-Emilion has some tannin to shed, but its finish reveals considerable persistence. It is a strong, virile, broodingly impressive effort. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018. Rating: 90 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Jun 2007)
