Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Grand Corbin-Despagne has gorgeous purity of crushed black cherries and blackberries on the nose with hints of fragrant earth, roses and menthol plus a waft of unsmoked cigars. The medium-bodied palate is firm with energetic fruit, a lively backbone and a long, earthy finish.
