This is going to age beautifully. Just 38hl/ha were harvested because of very small berries - around 30% smaller than 2014. It’s a little more fragrant and floral than other St-Emilions in 2015. A lovely wine, with touches of cinnamon finessing the finish. Only 10% was used in second wine production. Matured in 40% new oak — normally larger vintages could go as far as 50%, but this year they felt they wanted to keep the emphasis on the subtle beauty of the fruit.

It offers ample notes of ripe cherries, strawberries, dried herbs and bouquet garni, with a beautiful floral quality developing with time in the glass. Ripe, undeniably sexy and polished on the palate, with full-bodied richness and ultra-fine tannin, give bottles a few year and drink over the following 10-15. Tasted three times.

Plum pastries with violets and spiced blueberry fruits. The palate has impressive plushness and rich, fleshy appeal. Long finish. Try from 2022.

The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, elegant and well balanced with grainy tannins, finishing lively and long.

The tannins on this medium bodied wine are soft. This is an elegant, refined, supple, silky wine that will reward 3-5 years in the cellar. The wine was made from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2015+Corbin
