(92-94) The 2016 Corbin is a blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc picked between 5-22 October at 48 hectoliters per hectare and matured in 45% new oak. It has an attractive bouquet, well defined black cherries, briary and undergrowth scents, real character here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin threaded through layers of crisp, slightly toasty fruit and a dash of spice towards the focused finish. This is an excellent Saint Emilion that should be "singing" once in bottle. -Neal Martin

(92-93) A linear and fresh young red for the vintage with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium body, firm tannins. Crisp. Long and polished. Shows length and polish. Better than 2015.

(89-92) The 2016 Grand Corbin is super-expressive, soft and open-knit, all qualities that will make it a joy to drink upon release. Rose petal and cinnamon notes add lift to the bright, red-fleshed fruit, while silky tannins add to an impression of finesse. The oak needs time to fully integrate, but otherwise, the 2016 is very pretty today. Tasted two times.
