External Reviews for Chateau Corbin St. Emilion

Readers looking for a fruit-forward rather than structured, massive 2005 are advised to check out Corbin, a reasonably-priced, deliciously fruity effort offering notes of herbs, black cherries, currants, and a judicious touch of toasty oak. This hedonistic, plush, medium to full-bodied, round, generous, savory St.-Emilion should drink nicely for 10ndash;15 years.

[Barrel tasting] Licorice and tar with blackberry. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Long. Best ever from here?

A deep plum/blue/purple color precedes a big, sweet bouquet of flowers, black fruits, and damp earth. This elegant, medium to full-bodied, rich chewy 2003 possesses decent acidity, ripe tannin, and a persistent finish. Consume it over the next 10-15 years.

A sleeper of the vintage, this is a St.-Emilion estate that is emerging from an undistinguished period of mediocrity. Black and red fruit characteristics dominate the smoky, fragrant aromas of this deep ruby/purple-colored 2003. Nicely-textured, medium to full-bodied, and fleshy, this is a delicious, upfront offering to enjoy over the next 8-10 years.

Attractive aromas of currant and light vanilla. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Slightly hollow midpalate but nicely crafted. Best after 2007.

Dark purple in color, showing very powerful aromas of crushed blackberry and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky, extracted tannins and lots of extraction overall, but therersquo;s still so much going on. This is big and juicy. Best after 2015.
