2020 Château Grand Corbin-Despagne  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Very deep in color, the wine pops with its aromatic profile of flowers, wild cherries, blue fruit, licorice, smoke and cocoa. Lush, silky and polished, with velvety tannins and a finish that keeps on going due to all its layers of sweet, vibrant, red pit fruits and seductive textures. This is a nice step up in quality and concentration here. 92-94 Pts
