Note : 91 - 93
The 2015 CORBIN is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was cropped at 38 hl/ha picked between 17 September and 9 October. It has an intense bouquet, a touch of fish oil underneath the feisty red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a dense, quite structured opening, a tight fist of red and black fruit at the moment that I am certain will open up during its barrel maturation. What I appreciate here is the precision on the finish, at a level that I have not encountered with respect to this property. It may warrant a higher score when in bottle. Drink 2021 - 2045.
